...without wrapping it in bacon? I just don't understand.

If you don't care too much about uniformity, roll the thigh up from the outside and slice it like a chiffonade.

Sometimes I just want chicken all on its own, without adding other random flavors to it. Just juicy chicken. In these cases, I rely on thighs, as breasts seem to always be dry all on their own. :)

except be chopped up easily! There are sometimes when I cannot be bothered with cutting up a thigh when a breast is far more easier to handle. :P lazy me.

Pieter, where do you get your chickens from? Can't find any decent ones around here. All soy-fed.

Not at all, you just need to marinate. Heat some spices in oil, mix this spicy oil mixture with yogurt [and plenty of kosher salt]. Marinate overnight. You will have some utterly delicious, MOIST chicken breasts.

Haha! Sorry; don't like scallops either. But then I'm not a big believer in that god you mention, either. Maybe I'm missing out on something :-)

then you've never had bacon wrapped scallops. God orders bacon wrapped scallops in heaven. i'm fairly sure of it.

I think that post-workout is when you would need the bacon and its accompanying fat the most, and probably some carbs thrown in the mix too. Its then that your body is primed to make the best use of your food to replenish the muscle glycogen you have so recently used up. At least that's my take on it.

Too dry the DoubleDown is. Tough to keep the breast moist when detached from bone.

me neither. Bonus point for filleting it and stuffing it with more bacon or a bunch of butter or maybe some cheese...and then wrapping it in bacon.

There's nothing the chicken breast can do that the chicken thigh can't do better.

If you roast the chicken whole, the skin does the job of the bacon, resulting in moist succulent breast meat. Rotisserie chicken...mmmm....ferris wheel for chickens....

It just occured to me.

Chicken breasts could serve as a decent bun substitute for hamburgers.

Bacon is not the answer to everything! If your chicken breast is dry, it's overcooked.

While I LOVE bacon....it just doesn't do it for me wrapped around other stuff. Chicken breast - yeah, it's good with lots of mayo (and no bacon). The mayo solves the "dryness" problem and has a great flavor, especially if the mayo is homemade. Chicken dark meat is great too, but not so much with mayo (just personal preference).

It's all good, as long as it's paleo!

Here is one time I'd prefer the plain chicken breast over breast + bacon: my post-workout meal. Heavy on the protein, light on fat & carbs. deVany had a citation on this recently. I'll hunt it down.

Why would you eat anything without wrapping it in bacon first?! Bacon is one of those foods that goes with anything. Chicken breast, asparagus, scallops, a shot of vodka, even ice cream. Bacon-wrapped strawberries dipped in chocolate should be the new Paleo food of romance.

Of course that was mostly tongue-in-cheek humour - though those taste good, too, especially wrapped in bacon.

On a slightly more serious note, a beer-can chicken yields the most succulent breast I've ever eaten. Besides, practice nose-to-tail eating. Every part has its worth in different applications.
