Home made is sooo much better.
This is my only "bad" spot. The farmers I get my meat from only sell whole chickens. A whole chicken really does me no good, it would be a huge waste of chicken. I don't care for anything but the breast. So, I buy frozen, boneless chicken breasts at the grocery store. I can't really think of any way around that except to not have chicken at all.
Hack it up, freeze the other parts and donate them to a soup kitchen. You probably will still pay the same or less per lb.
