I see both with skin and without everywhere. If your regular store doesn't have skin on chicken try somewhere else.
I buy skin on bone in chicken. I usually remove the skin but sometimes leave it on and roast the chicken for the crisp delicious skin.

Where I live and every other place I've lived or visited, I've always been able to find chicken with and without skin. There is an exception to my statement - I don't recall ever seeing skinless chicken wings or drumsticks anywhere. Maybe that's because I just didn't notice them, but I don't think so. Next time I go to the store, I'm going to look.


OK, fine..........I will explain why I started this thread.

I go into the grocery-store yesterday, looking for chicken for my lunch. All of the chicken-packages that were of the type of chicken-cuts I was looking for, had the skin removed. Not just the breasts.....thighs and legs also. I hate grocery shopping because of this type nonsense, hem, haw and have to go to another store to find what I am looking for, yuck.

And as a bonus to this stupid trend of wrecking chicken, butchers now remove just about every scrap of fat from pork-meat..............SMH!!!!!!!!!!!

YES, I am angry at this nonsense, pig-biting mad actually.

I'd be happy to find skinless legs. I hate skinning those things. But that's because I rarely make legs in anything but a sauce. I think it would be different if I made chicken legs with crispy skin. If I want them crispy, I just batter and fry them, but that's such a pain, I don't do it that often.

In this area skin is on thighs and legs and on bone-in chicken breasts.

I'm also one who cuts the fat off pork and some beef. I absolutely hate biting into a forkful of pork only to find myself trying to eat some chewy, icky fat. It's just a personal phobia. And as I make most of my meats in the crock pot, I really don't need the fat to make them tender.

Where I live, if it is deboned, the skin is off.

If it is bone in, the skin is on.

So I buy bone in, and then debone it. Voila, boneless, skin-on chicken.

OK, and who the HECK thinks that taking skin off of an already very-lean cut of meat, chicken-breasts, is a logical, sane or palatable thing to do?

Walmart - there is the problem, in my opinion. Go somewhere else (regular grocery store, meat market, etc.) and you will find what you want, as many posters here have stated.

I'm still trying to figure out how they manage to make bacon that won't render down a lot of good bacon grease. I have to go the a butcher shop and pay $7.00 a pound in order to make German potato salad.

Makes me want to whine, "Just because some people can't eat fat why should the rest of us all be put on a diet?" Waaaah.

I have no trouble finding skin-on chicken. Nothing quite like crispy barbecued chicken skin, mmmm mmmmmmm! Not a big fan of the soggy "sproingy" variety.
