Mine is the thigh flap, from legs and thighs with back attached. With BBQ sauce and second the tail bone. What are yours? I’m a dark meat guy.

Skin, legs, and the Bürzel.

Used to be the breast but now I can’t eat that much so 3 – 4 wings.

All of them, Well, maybe not the beak or feet.

I used to work at KFC. My favorite was a center breasr. I don’t think they cut the chicken that way any more.

@filmfann I Googled centre breasr and didn’t show a good picture. I worked at KFC for two months 15 years ago. Nevet heard of it.

I worked at KFC for 4 years to work my way through college (1973–1977). I always thought that the center breasr was the besr! Still do.

Hard to answer. It depends on how it is prepared.

There’s a restaurant near me that does a great garlic wing plate. So when I go there, that’s the thing I order.

On the other hand, I’ll go to a different restaurant that does chicken cordon bleu very nicely – and that’s the breast.

So it isn’t the part that is important, it’s the preparation.

So you KFC people of yore.. what is center breast? Is it a chicken wing?

My favourite chicken parts were the five chickens in Mussorgsky’s opera Boris Godunov.

The way the chicken was cut for KFC, the center breast was pretty much how it sounds. A cut of chicken from between the breasts, and it had a bit of cartilage kind of like a solar plexus. Juicy.

You mean the bone?

KFC cut up the body of the chichen in 3 pieces: “right brest”, “left brest” and “center brest” (also called “the keel”). This way there are no “backs” that no ones likes.

I like the thigh the best. It’s meaty and flavorful. It’s not too small and not too large. I use thighs in my chicken soup. I just boil them with onions, celery and carrots. At some point, I take the thighs out and take the meat off the bones, cut the meat into small pieces, and then I put it all back into the soup so the stock gets the flavor and fullness from the bones, too.

i worked at Chicken delight when they invented it!!! (I can’t actually say who invented it but it came online while I was working there.)
When I first started working there in the mid 1960’s a chicken had 8 pieces. 2 breasts, 2 thighs, 2 legs and 2 wings.
After a year, some marketing genius invented another piece: the front part of the breast, and called it the “Keel” after the keel of a ship. That meant a Chicken Delight chicken now had 9 pieces. A (worthless) marketing advantage.
The keel had the best meat of the breast. But t also required an extra cut when disassembling a chicken.
We now could sell an 18 piece bucket of chicken, whle the other vendor could only offer a 16 piece bucket. Incredibly, to me anyway, it worked.

Meh, I prefer those mobile grills, that sell the whole chicken.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Drum stick, thigh, and some small pieces on the back. Love wings, but they are best separate, and sauced.

Dutchess_lll's avatar

Still puzzling out “center brest.”

LuckyGuy's avatar

@Dutchess_lll Rather than cutting the front part of the chicken into 2 breasts, they cut a diamond shaped center piece out and call that the Keel. The remaining 2 pieces are called ribs or breasts. I see that KFC is doing that now.


Grilled chicken specifically is my favorite kind of chicken
