Boneless chicken breasts
I'm not a nutritionist or anything but why chicken breasts and not boneless, skinless thighs?
The calorie and fat diff is negligible ounce for ounce but the thighs offer a bigger nutritional payoff for the same calories for some nutrients (eg twice the iron, 3 times the zinc.. ) Thighs are cheaper too.
I get the big packs of boneless/skinless chicken thighs from Costco. There's a bit of fat that can be easily trimmed away.
I only buy thighs and ewallu do enjoy them ( hell is it even possable to overcook them ha !) And soo much cheaper BUT have always thought and heard that they aew much fatter ( and I always buy skinkess ones too ) so its this or pork tenderloin ( probably cheaper but equally flavourless)
while i appreciate you may not have freezer space - the answer is what we call (only in Canada!) - hockey chicken - ie find a neighbor/relative/friend who has kids in organized sports (incl minor hockey, soccer, softball etc) - they all seem to end up selling "hockey chicken" (and other frozen meat products) as fundraisers.
my friend up on the sunshine coast (Gibsons, sechelt etc) told me that their minor hockey league was selling decent product from a decent butcher in Sechelt - they could even get maui ribs portion packed and frozen for less than the price one pays to walk in to the same butcher shop in Sechelt (Dave the butcher)
check the supplier name on the order form -
I bought some a few weeks ago at one of the two E. Indian meat/poultry stores on Fraser @ 51st. I bought from the one closest to 51st. I actually bought a bunch of tandoori chicken pieces, a few of a lemon spice variety, and some butter chicken ..... all of which were in the range of $2.99-3.99 per lb. The plain chicken breasts were around the same price but I don't recall if they were skinless and boneless too. Best for you to just go there and see for yourself.
