This is interesting from an economic perspective. The product that is all meat, no waste, is now cheaper than the product with bones and skin.

In seven of the last 11 months, wholesale wing prices have been higher than breast prices, a reversal in a market where breasts usually reign supreme. In September, the average wholesale price for whole chicken wings in the Northeast was $1.48 a pound, according to the Agriculture Department. Yet skinless boneless breasts were $1.21 a pound.

Paid almost two bucks for party wings today and I remember when suppliers would drop off a case gratis as no one wanted them.

All a matter of supply and demand. There is a glut in the boneless breast market as great quantities of chicken is being exported to the middle east. They prefer dark meat, that leaves us with an over supply of white.
