    It's satisfied me throughout the years, but I am wondering if there is better.

    I prefer Perdue. Less academic, more flavorful.

    Have you tried their law school?

    I like Bell & Evans, which is available in some supermarkets but mostly in more gourmet-type food stores.

    It's like I told a friend of mine when I asked him why he wanted to cheat on his wife, he said he wanted to see if there was better out there.

    I told him, theres always better out there, you just don't go looking for it.


    but back on topic, I usually try to stay consistent with my purchases on food if its satifying me then I'm loyal. When I go out to eat at a restaurents that I've eaten at before, I always know what I'm getting before I get there, I guess you can say my food expience is dull and boring, but I'm content with it.

    Lol. Not nearly NYBIGLAW enough for my taste. You'd be lucky to get placed at some local DA's office in Nebraska.

    Empire kosher makes a nice chicken. It's been blessed by a representative of god so it must be better.

    Hell no. I get these big plastic bags of 5lbs of just pure chicken breasts. It's called Pilgrim's Pride. Just Chicken. It's not bloated with water and salt like Purdue and a lot of other brands.

    Purdue tastes way too artificial for me. I dunno what they do to their chicken, but it doesn't look or taste right. They used to claim that the chicken was so yellow because the chicken ate marigold flowers, but I've never bought that explanation.

    Plain ole supermarket brand that's labeled "all natural" is fine with me. I often shop at Market Basket here in the Boston area, and their 69 cent per pound whole birds are quite tasty.

    Bell and Evans certainly is good too, but it's quite expensive and I usually don't want to pay that much for . . . chicken.

    In NYC Murray's seems to be the best widely available brand at higher end stores but it is $$$$.

    At least you'll rarely face disappointment.

    it's because it is artificial. It's a bunch of crap with a little bit of chicken. I bodybuild so I eat chicken everyday. This Pilgrim's Pride stuff from Wegman's is great. Perfect sized portions and it's 10 bucks for a 5 pound bag which lasts me about a week, maybe a little less. I used to buy the giant pakages of fresh stuff from Wegman's and freeze it but this is way easier, better sized portions, and a lot cheaper. I do chicken 2-3 times a day and usually london broil once a day and it is very cheap to do this.
