Dark meat chicken returns

Jeremy Hobson Apr 17, 2012

According to a new report in the Wall Street Journal, dark meat chicken is once again rising in popularity compared to its lighter counterparts.

Can the producers keep up?

Here to talk with us in today’s Mid-day Extra is Marshall Eckblad, who wrote the story for the Journal.

He says that it is a combination of a lot of factors that brought dark meat back from, well, the dark side — including big time producers like Chiptole favoring the more flavorful cuts, and the popularity of cooking TV shows that have shown how to cook on the bone again.
