Annu- al per capita consumption exceeds 70 pounds, up more than 150 per- cent from 1960 figures. Chicken is nutritious. Chicken is lower in fat and calories than most meats and provides impor- tant nutrients, including generous amounts of high-quality protein. In fact, one 3-ounce serving of chicken provides more than half the protein the body needs each day. Chicken is convenient. Gone are the days when chicken re- quired a minimum of one hour to cook.

Accord- ing to economists, when today's retail chicken prices are adjusted for inflation, it costs less than the prices in the 1950s. The fresh meat section at the supermarket offers the largest ever selection of chicken ever. In addition to whole birds, one of the least expensive ways to buy chicken, consumers can choose from leg or breast quarters, or the whole bird cut into pieces. For those who prefer select parts, there are drumsticks, bone- less or bone-in thighs, wings, drummettes, and whole or split breasts with or without bones. The amount of chicken to buy depends on the numbers of people to be served, the desired size of the servings and the form in which the chicken is purchased. If a whole bird is the choice, allow 1/2 to 3/4 of a pound per serving. For about 3 inches apart. Set aside. In 2-quart saucepan, combine 1 cup water and l/2. cup butter.
