Vietnamese are right into the freshest of all produce and that includes their chickens.  What could be fresher than a chicken that has just been killed and then cooked straight away ??  The stupid idea about refrigeration has brought chemicals to our food, so the way Vietnamese approach food is the best idea and if it was more practical we should go back to it.
