Boneless skinless chicken breasts are popular cuts of chicken for busy families because there isn’t much preparation needed. No de-boning; no de-skinning. Just trim off a little fat and you’re ready to cook! Stock your freezer with chicken breasts and pull them out during hectic weeks.
Chicken thighs have a lot going for them. First, dark meat is more flavorful than white meat, so recipes using chicken thighs are going to pack more punch. And second, they’re more affordable than chicken breasts. If there’s a way to save money on dinner, we’ll take it.
Chicken legs, or chicken leg quarters, consist of the thigh and drumstick. This dark meat is full of flavor and very economical. Cook them together or detach them and cook separately.
Wings are classic game day food, and it’s almost a rule that you will get messy. They can be grilled, baked or fried, and the sauce options are endless. And we’ve got the secret technique for cooking the best chicken wings ever!

This cut of meat is ideal for kid-friendly chicken tenders as well as more grown up-friendly options like fajitas and Thai chicken and noodles. If you are in a time crunch and need a semi-homemade meal, check out the brand of chicken tenders we recommend.
A rotisserie chicken is the ultimate shortcut ingredient. You get the whole bird already cooked, so you don’t have to. Plus, there are options. Eat each part as prepared, or shred the meat and use it in a casserole. Either way, we’re big fans. PS. This grocery store has the best rotisserie chicken.
