Does this ever happen to you? Last night I wanted to make chicken soup from scratch. I had everything I needed except for a chicken. Went to the local chain grocery store and they had no whole chickens! Plenty of parts (including those incredibly overpriced boneless, skinless breasts.) This seems to happen often at this store. If I'm looking for something like boneless thighs they won't be there. The next time I'm there not looking for boneless thighs, the meat department will be full of them.
The story has a happy ending. I bought some leg quarters and wings and used them to make my soup. Turned out excellent.
