I usually don't buy boneless skinless chicken breasts but they were on sale for $1.79 a pound so I couldn't refuse.
I bought a 6 1/2 # package.
Didn't look too closely
Got home and opened the package.
There were only 5 breasts in the pack.
These chicken must be related to Dolly Parton.
3 were a pound and a half and the other 2 were a pound each.
Since I usually buy whole chickens and break them down this was quite the surprise to me.
Each breast weighed about 1/4 of the whole chicken I usually get.
Is this the new norm in chickens since "healthy" eating promotes boneless, skinless, (flavorless) chicken as the way to go?
Was I deceived in my purchase and am now the owner of silicone enhanced chicken parts?
Oh I'll use them and can't complain about the price.
But I think I'll go back to the more labor intensive whole chicken in the future.
