Definitely dark, though I like a mix when there is roast turkey or chicken around.

I made a braised chicken dish last night and the wings and thighs were SO MUCH better than those big ole dry chicken boobs.

We do mix it, that is why I love to cook the entire chicken, but dark is more moist and has so much more flavor. I think with the emphasis on low fat for so many years we all switched to light (breast meat) but we are definately leaning back. I do love white meat, if it isn't overcooked for chicken or turkey sandwhiches.

the secret and it can be tricky is not to over cook it. Still dark meat does have more flavor no matter how it is cooked. Last night we had chicken and dumplings, I only cooked the chicken an hour and slowly, still the breast was on the dry side. I have found the best way to keep it moist is grilling.

Both, at different times. Dark when it's fresh out of the oven and still hot and juicy, white when it's left over.

i grew up with white meat, but as an adult i have tasted the dark meat and i have switched over to the dark side. i even turned my mother over and now she is grilling chicken thighs almost exclusively. my mom's boyfriend claims he put her on the thighs, but im pretty sure it was me.

For chicken, I prefer dark meat.

For turkey, I prefer white meat as long as it's not dry.

Dark meat! White is fine, but I will go for the dark first. Husband prefers white meat, so there's no fighting over the bird!
