That's one of the reasons I don't care for white meat. It strikes me as being dry, regardless of how well it's cooked.
I don't think my saliva glands work as well as those of others. My food has to have gravy, sauce or juice of some sort on it, or I"ll smother it in ketchup or BBQ sauce.
Once it's nice and wet with something, it's much more enjoyable to me.
I am with you. That's why I love the good fond on the bottom of the pan. GRAVY! It is my drug of choice.

The first thing I look for in a meal is a gravy boat or dish of sauce. If one or the other is present, I know I"ll enjoy the meal.

A chicken breast all by itself, with plain potatoes and veggies with no sauce or topping makes me thirsty just looking at it. Eating it? Forgetaboutit! Put some gravy on the chicken and taters, some cheese sauce on the veggies and I'm good to go!

Ah, the infamous dry white meat problem. I had it solved for me by a very nice Jewish lady. She said, simply cook it breast down on the rack and the juices will run down into the breast rendering it moist, and to a certain extant even if it is over cooked. Try it, it works.

Ha Ha! The folk from the old country always give us the most peculiar attitudes.

Thanks pmeheran, It's the type of meat, not the method of cooking it. White meat just tastes dry to me, regardless of how it's cooked. It's been that way since I was a child. With me, white meat equals gravy or sauce. That's the only cure for it.
