Epic Food Co. has launched a new take-out and delivery service specializing in organic roast chicken served with chef-made sauces, sides and salads.
The menu features 4-pound, organic, free-range birds cooked in an oven specifically designed to roast chicken. Chef James Bain, owner of Epic Food Co., prepares them in two styles – a classic roast with sea salt and black pepper, and a spicy Peruvian rub with cumin, paprika, citrus and a touch of jalapeno. Each is served with smoky bone broth as well as a choice of sauces such as hot honey, sweet chili barbecue, and chimichurri.
The half-chicken meal is served with a baked sweet potato or roasted new potatoes and a choice of salad for $14.95 and serves two. The whole-chicken meal includes the same sides and is portioned to feed four for $29.95.
Bain said that at 4 pounds, these birds are larger than most you find in the grocery store, and often will yield enough chicken for an additional meal. He is currently working on a database of recipes that can be made from the leftover chicken.
“The idea of the meals is to provide a healthy take-out option for busy families,” Bain said. “Often the go-to take out options are Chinese or pizza, and this just offers another option that is family-friendly and good for you.”
Bain also uses a special holding oven to hold the birds until they are sold, insuring that they stay moist and do not continue to steam in the packaging, which can cause them to dry out quickly.
“As a chef I’m always thinking of how to take things to the next level,” Bain said. “And by using these high-quality birds with really great seasoning and the oven that holds them perfectly, it creates a much better product.”
A vegan dinner special is also available with whole rotisserie spiced cauliflower, choice of potatoes, a salad and a side of cinnamon baked apples.  
The half and whole chickens, as well as the sides and salads, are also sold individually. Epic also offers a wide variety of grab-and-go casseroles that can be baked at home.
Chicken and Greens menu items are available for pick up after 4 p.m. daily, and a limited delivery service will begin this week.
