What's an Airline Chicken Breast?

Recommended Posts

A couple of weeks ago a group of us went to a nearby café for dinner, and airline chicken breast appeared on the menu in a few dishes.  The server didn't know what they were, but maybe someone here does.  What's an airline chicken breast?  What, if anything, makes it worth special mention?

Breast + drumette. Said to be more flavorful, I never saw the point.

So it's another term for supreme?

No, not really. As I understand, it's the breast half with the (bone-in) wing attached. One advantage it has is that the wing helps keep the skin attached, which is pretty much impossible with a plain boneless breast half.

This is the Statler chicken breast, sometimes just called a "hotel" breast

Hmm, the Wikipedia def. says the tenderloin is attached but the video shows him removing the tenderloin.

Had an airline chicken breast at my wedding tasting last night. It was exactly as the video describes. Very good too.
