Air-chilled means it’s fresh, not frozen, with no added water, according to Hy-Vee promotional materials. It's also raised cage-free on a vegetable diet with no antibiotics.

“So you get an all-natural, tender and flavorful chicken,” according to Hy-Vee.

Since it’s a private label, the price is right, Hy-Vee added. A whole Cool chicken is on sale for $1.99 a pound; $5.99 a pound for boneless skinless chicken breasts.
