Today: Your chicken might be boneless and skinless -- but that doesn't mean it should be flavorless.

If you tell someone that boneless, skinless chicken breasts are on the menu, it won't elicit much of a reaction. Tell them, however, that you're roasting a whole chicken, braising thighs, or frying up some wings, and watch their mouths fill with water and their eyes grow big. 

It's true that 'boneless' and 'skinless' are often equated with flavorless -- and that skin and bones are what breathe life and soul into many of our favorite preparations of chicken. At the same time, we love the ease and healthfulness of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Prepared thoughtfully, they can be just as appealing -- and equally lust-worthy -- as other cuts of the meat. Not buying it? Here are 10 boneless, skinless, anything-but-boring chicken breast recipes that will convince you otherwise:
