I rarely buy the boneless skinless breasts anymore. You can get it on sale here for $1.99/lb. but there is still so much fat and gristle that needs to be cut off it's hardly worth it.
I buy the large packs of the split chicken breasts (bone-in, skin on) when they're on sale and roast them. We have roast chicken with gravy a couple of nights, then I pick the bones clean. The larger pieces go into a pasta or salad, the smaller pieces I freeze to use in soup or quesadillas later. I get about 4 meals for 4 people off of 4 large breasts, roasted.
The only thing I use the boneless, skinless breasts for are for marinating and grilling, but my grill broke a few months ago and I've never gotten it fixed, so I've just not used them recently.
But I would NEVER pay upwards of $5 a pound for chicken!
A big boy did it and ran away.
^^I completely understand that but I am cheap so give me the growth hormone/antibiotic chicken I hate chickens anyway-I have no feeling whatsoever about their suffering(as opposed to almost every other animal alive-I would NEVER eat veal and don't eat pork-rarely eat beef either-feel sorry for the cows)
I used to skin and debone, but boneless skinless are pretty affordable here in TN/MS area. I buy a couple lbs of boneless skinless breasts every week and boil them, shred them and put in 1 cup ziploc baggies and stick a couple in the fridge and the rest in the freezer. Then I have cut up chicken when I need it and it's not a pain in the ass to make something healthy to eat for dinner or lunch instead of eating out. I like to throw some in with those lipton rice or noodle mixes for lunch. Or a salad, soup, Chicken Helper. Whatever. I also make Chicken enchiladas or other casseroles with.

^^^That's what I do, too. I discovered recently that if I stick them in the crock pot covered with water for a few hours, they turn out SOOOO much better, and shred nicely.
