Hi, I’m Jeanette Pavini, Savings Expert for, here with your Money Minute. Today spend a little time with us and we’ll show you how to save in the poultry section.

The cut of chicken you choose has a huge impact on your grocery bill.

Bone-in chicken is typically less expensive than boneless, plus, bone-in meat adds a lot of flavor to your meal.

Like most meat and other foods, the closer chicken is to its original form, the less money you pay.

So you’ll probably get the best deal when you buy a whole chicken. In fact, you’ll save around $2 per pound buying a whole chicken versus boneless skinless chicken breasts.

If you’re still not ready to give up your boneless chicken, go with thighs instead of breasts and you’ll still save a substantial amount.

So this week, make it your mission to actually open up that grocery store ad when it comes in the mail. Study the meat section, look for the best price on poultry and buy accordingly.

That’s your Money Minute, see you next time!
