    Tomatoes from the grocery store, yes. Fresh picked off the plants in my garden, no.

    Yes, I'm one of those, too. I generally prefer white meat to dark.

    I prefer white meat too (with both chicken and turkey), but roasted with the bones and skin over boneless, skinless breast any day. (The latter has its uses, but the former is delicious just roasted with a bit of salt and pepper.)

    The white fungal rind on camembert and brie is the best part.

    What kind of monster are you?

    I can't remember the last time I used chicken breast for anything. Thighs have so much more flavor.

    Tomatoes are stupid.
    Ketchup is an abomination.

    Mushrooms are disgusting and ruin every dish.

    I am indifferent. Breast with skin on/bone in is alright.

    My opinion (possibly unpopular), is that chicken breast lacks its own inherent flavor. And, yes, I have had it properly cooked, but even when moist and juicy, it tastes like nothing to me. If it has skin on it, I taste the skin. If it has seasoning, sauce, breading, etc, I taste those elements, but nothing in the meat itself.

    I think it's fine as an element in a dish...like tofu, it takes on the flavor of whatever you pair it with. But, if I'm just grilling or roasting some chicken, it's gotta be thighs for me.

    I'm the same with turkey...on Thanksgiving, when everyone's going after the breast meat, I'm just piling my plate with dark meat.

    You are right for chicken (or any animal) that is grown commercially. There is a big difference in taste when it's a free range animal. A lot depends on what they eat. It's the same for farmed fish. The flavor is much less than wild caught fish. However, free range costs much more to raise so most couldn't afford it. I grew up on a farm. As another thought, the type of soil can change the taste of vegetables. We get tomatoes grown on Vesuvius and volcanic soil gives excellent flavor. Another example are Bronte pistachios which are also grown on volcanic soil. Sometimes the grocery store will have carrots or potatoes that come from another country and are grown in sand--no flavor and full of water.

    Raw meat in any form is disgusting.

    Why?
    Did you ever have a properly made steak tartare or carpaccio?

    I have tried both of those at nice restaurants and I stand by what I said. Disgusting. Sashimi is vomit inducing. Raw meat is also dangerous. I learned this in parasitology class and in my medical practice.

    Maybe take that course again and pay attention? ;)

    I got an A+ in that class. I stand by what I said.

    Time to learn to cook and enjoy the benefits ;)
    I knew this was going to be a very "popular" opinion hehe. Yet ppl buy more breast than any other type of chicken, but when asked..... 90% will say thighs are sooooo much better.

    I know how to cook, thanks. That's the standard response from people that love their chicken breasts...."You just don't know how to cook." Nah, I just prefer the rich flavor of dark meat poultry...chicken, turkey, duck.

    Growing up, I didn't like milk, chocolate milk, the cookie part of Oreos(too bitter), pbj sandwiches, or coleslaw. 🤷
