The year of the chicken breast

NRN is out with its year of food trends.

The year of the chicken breast

Nation's Restaurant News, the trade publication, has unleashed its top trends for 2013.

Among them: The hotness of chicken breast.

"Many of the largest restaurant chains introduced new chicken breast items and “boneless wings” made of breast in 2012, and I’d be shocked if we didn’t see more of that in 2013, writes NRN's Bret Thorn. "As NRN contributor and commodity expert John Barone said in a recent webinar on the drought’s impact, 'The takeaway is to see how you can use more breast meat on your menus.'"

Also on the list: bad-for-you skin and avocados.
