Tastes like chicken?

I don’t understand why people care so much about boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They have so little flavor that you have to work very hard to make them taste good — brining, rubs, marinades, sauces. And you have to be extremely careful to prevent them from drying out. Tastes like chicken? No, they taste incredibly bland.

These days, I use chicken thighs in most of my recipes. They have so much more flavor and they hold up better in sauces. I still grill chicken breasts, but only with the bone in. A lot of flavor gets lost if you remove the bone.
