    It's meat that's cheaper and more easily processed for things like chicken nuggets.

    MOST fast food joints use rib meat in their nuggets.

    It's a negative - it means a small portion of the meat isn't chicken breast (which is more expensive). They have to note it to avoid getting accused of false advertising.

    hmm... I went to Burger King the other day and they had some tasty looking chicken breast sandwich thing going... I bought one, and the f-ing thing was $3.99 plus tax !! compared to like $2 for their regular chicken sandwich. I asked the manager WTF it was so expensive, he said it was because it was whole breast meat and not ground-and-reformed-to-patty rib meat junk
