Breakfast Chicken

Why has chicken never caught on as a breakfast food? There is pig in every form from pork chop to sausage, even a few cuts of beef. But the poor chicken, beloved in many other food formats, has missed the breakfast boat. Is it because we prefer something greasy and fat laden early in the morning?

Sure, you hear of chicken and waffles. But that is not normally available. And that has fried chicken, not steamed or roasted. Maybe that’s the answer. Chicken is bland, pale and white. Nearly tasteless. Filling maybe, but not like good old bacon or a small T-bone steak.

The same applies to turkey, a larger relative of the chicken. Turkey and eggs? Bah.
