Chicken Breast Explained
Chicken breast is the classic white meat that can be used for (almost) anything. Whether it’s a taco filling, curry dishes, or just served as it is, the white meat can be used as a blank canvas on which to infuse your favorite flavors.
Although they can be sold with skin-on and/or bone-in, we prefer them skinless and boneless. This makes them easier and quicker to cook, and gives you more room to be creative. They’ll cook more evenly, and won’t have the bone or skin getting in the way of the smoke.
Trust us – a good chicken breast can be just as juicy and tender as any other chicken cut. Best of all, it’s a cheap cut relative to beef or pork, making this a great jumping off point for barbecue beginners.
