I agree. The poultry purchased in Super Markets is not
"meat" at all, but soft, like processed meats--flavorless without SALT and lots of seasonings! Meat of all animals is to chew! And meat has distinct wonderful flavor of the species with little seasonings, that can be varied for different recipes.
I do not purchase chicken at Super Markets (and few towns have MEAT MARKETS any longer), where some specially grown chicken might be available. MANY Years of home grown poultry has ended, as I do not butcher, and no longer have people to do it (my gamebird hunters have offered to do it, if I raise fryers/roasters again.) So, I eat very little chicken any longer (and I still have my teeth!) Tough? Grind it--lots of recipes for ground poultry.
