Healthiest choices for chicken breasts and where to find it?

Okay, Im new here,but found this site while GooGling why the chicken breasts offered in ALL my local supermarkets are so darn big. I thought for a while big was good, cause, well you get more and more is better right? Then I noticed my chicken always came out dry and crumbly when I boiled it for chicken salad, etc., and examined why this change. I was buying boneless, skinless and suspected that had something to do with the poor results. So I went looking for ones with the skin on, etc, only to find the 2+ pounders being offered. This concerned me because I was wondering why their so big and immediately thought of hormones injected. Didnt realize that was now illegal, but other things injected are apparently not..
My question is, can I still buy chicken breast bone in skin on of ANY size that are without injections of any kind.? I mean do all of them have antibiotics in them? And does size indicate a less flavorful or unhealthy choice? And are any of the boneless/skinless as tasty or cook as well?
I was searching for small breast for a RRay recipe I saw last week and it was then that I discovered the non-existence of small breasts in my local marts. The smallest I was able to find was a 2 pk at brunos that was 1 1/4 lb each and not cheap.
Does anyone have any advice on whats best health wise and where to get it? If it's organic does that mean no injections? Can I even find organic chicken with skin on and bone in? All I have seen is boneless (celebrity brand of some sort) that said no injections...
