|I love a pan roasted chicken - In the context of a whole chicken, the breast is a blank canvas|
I love chicken - a whole roasted chicken is one of my favorite meals of all time- made in either a splatchcock style as above, or on my ancient rotisserie. In the case of those, the breast is a part of a whole- it is in context, it is a blank canvas upon which you can layer lovely flavors.

It Is Not Diet Food
The increase in sales of chicken breast correlate with obesity. Many think chicken breast is "diet food." It isn't. Try this experiment: eat four ounces of chicken breast one night, four ounces of salmon the next, and four ounces of steak the next. See when you get hungry. Most people find that the fat in the salmon and the savory of the steak keeps you from getting hungry longer than the bland chicken breast.
Chicken breast is just poultry - it isn't diet food.
