Please help me like chicken breast!

jen223 | Jun 18, 201505:45 PM

I never buy or order chicken breasts. I grew up eating dark meat and prefer the flavor and juiciness of it.

However, I'm now a mother and lacking time and patience. And chicken breasts, especially boneless and skinless, just seem so easy. I feel like I can't be bothered with trimming thighs anymore. Not to mention I'm quite slow at it.

Any recipes or suggestions for chicken breasts? Maybe suggestions on the chicken itself? I can go to a farmer's market if I have time, but if any stores like a Whole Foods has particularly tasty breasts, I'd like to know. Are frozen breasts any good?

My biggest beef with chicken breast (uhh... is that confusing?) is that I often find it dry, either when I'm making it or sometimes when dining out, too. Second issue is I feel like there is more work needed to make it tasty.... Unlike beef which just needs S&P for me.

Any suggestions?
