I bought some chicken breasts at the store today. When I got home, I noticed they're just under 1 pound each. These are split breasts, not whole.
First, these must come from some crazy mutant birds. Chickens aren't meant to be that big. I've seen smaller turkeys at the store.
Second, this is just a flat-out ridiculous cut of meat. Who wants to deal with something so unwieldy? You can't really sautee it or grill it, because it's too think and lean. Various immersion methods or baking would work, but you'd still need to cut it up unless you're cooking for the Hulk.
Why is this a thing? What's the demand for it?
