I don't see the big deal. Just take a paring knife and pull it out. Not difficult. Our food cannot always be sanitized for us.

Considering that this thread is 7 years old I don't know what the heck anybody talking about.

I've never seen a chicken (or any meat) without tendons, except maybe in a Chicken McNugget. And I'm not really sure that really qualifies as chicken.

The tendon is attached to the chicken tender which is a separate muscle behind the breast. These tenders are usually removed and sold separately, which is why you don't usually see the tender with the tendon attached when you buy BS breasts. The tendon is the little white end on the tender and is how a muscle like the tender is attached to the skeleton.

I don't see it as something to gag over or give up chicken for but to each his own.

then they'd never get to the other side of the road.

the whitish tendon actually runs through the tenderloin.

i've tried to pull it out, as if to pull a bone, but that doesn't work. you just end up crushing the rest of the flesh. it's better to cut a little slit along it's length and remove it, if need be.

lol, steve, we finally agree on something. mcnuggets are nasty.

it gives me hope, though. you must have tried them once order to state an opinion. right as it is from great men as you and i.
