Big ad campaign going on (stupid "I ate the bones") and a 2-for-1 deal in last week's Parade. Tried it -- realized why fried chicken needs skin and bones. Yes, less messy and easier to eat. But a bit on the dry side, for both the white and the dark concoctions.

  1. Terrible ad. I like chicken fingers (esp. 'real' ones), so I thought I would like this, but I didn't. I'll stick with chicken fingers when I want boneless, I think.

    1. I love those ads, They make me laugh.

      1. This product terrifies me. I don't have an issue with boneless, skinless chicken, but once you remove the bone from a chicken thigh, it no longer stays in that neat triangular shape. How are they managing to make their boneless thighs into perfect triangles? And don't even get me started on the "I ate the bones" ads. Ick.

          meat glue, perhaps?

        2. I laugh every time I see that commercial! Too bad the boneless chicken isn't that good.

          1. Y'know, if I was a fast food chicken restaurant wanting to entice people to eat my product, posting pictures all over the place with people looking horrified because they "ate the bones" is probably not the first idea I'd run with.

              Agreed..not funny..not cutesy (the image of the lady with her hand over her face..smiling and looking to the side(titter...titter)). My first thought..eww.

            2. I've got to think that when you debone a leg or thigh you must loose at least 10% of the meat and with the bone in at 10 pieces for 12 bucks(coupon) a better deal than 10 boneless for 15 bucks with(coupon)
