Breast Man or Leg Man?

Chicken breast meat is highly overrated. It is usually expensive, stringy, dry and has little taste. We eat it because someone said we should always eat lean meat.

Chicken thigh meat is delicious. It is cheap, moist, tasty and satisfying. If you grill it you can drain off some of the fat and reduce the calories. As far as I am concerned, I would rather eat a smaller amount of thigh meat for more taste and satiation than a larger amount of breast meat.

How about you? Are you a breast (wo)man or a leg (wo)man?


  1. Oooh, I'm definitely with you on the thigh meat being my favourite, however I tend to eat breast most of the time. Yep, cos it's leaner.

    Although given the choice, I do prefer leggies!!

  2. Well my family is Sri Lankan and we do chicken curry. Using breast is somewhat of a sin. Thigh, preferably on the bone...or rather, cooked so long it's falling off the bone. Mmmmmmmm

  3. I highly recommend going for organic chicken breast or free range. There's quite a difference in taste.

    I concur with Frankie on the use of thigh meat in curries. Yum!

  4. I'm a breast girl as long as its not overcooked. I don't really like the texture of the thigh meat -it seems spongy to me.

  5. I love the thigh too.

  6. DEFINITELY thighs. So much cheaper too.
