“Everything about the food is made and backed with integrity and openness including closing the loop in sustainability by raising our own chickens,” the company said in a statement. “The food is not only hormone free, its antibiotic free, cage free, free range, farm raised, humanely raised and 100 percent natural!”

Holy Chicken!’s signature dish is The Grilled Crispy Chicken Sandwich. The menu also includes a kid’s item called the Lil’ Cluckers Chicken Tenders, made from 100 percent natural free range chickens and locally sourced and locally produced beverages.

Spurlock’s Academy Award–Nominated “Super Size Me” is credited with not only exposing the dangers of the processed fast food served at McDonald’s, but also helped in getting the chain to phase out its Super Size option. The director is currently working on a documentary about the group of armed militants who took over an Oregon federal building and wildlife refuge earlier this year. His latest film, “Rats” had a suitable midnight premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in the Midnight Madness Section before premiering on the Discovery Channel on October 22.
