I'm a bit confused here. Halal refers to a method of slaughtering the chicken (or other animal) and draining out the blood; just as kosher does. While a halal/kosher chicken may be organic, it doesn't need to be.

Limp asparagus can be refreshed by trimming off the ends of the stalks and placing... more
