Common names and forms

  1. Chicken Breast


Chicken breast is a lean cut of meat taken from the pectoral muscle on the underside of the chicken. Each whole chicken contains one chicken breast with two halves, which are typically separated during the butchering process and sold as individual breasts. The chicken breast is a particularly healthy part of this already nutritious bird, as it is low in fat and a good source of protein. The majority of chicken fat is concentrated in the skin, so chicken breasts are typically sold skinless and boneless.

Given its desirable white meat and health benefits, boneless chicken breast meat is the most expensive cut of chicken in comparison to chicken thighs, wings, and drumsticks.

Selection Guide

Check the “best by” date if you are buying a pre packed one. Select chicken with a pinkish hue.
