Airline chicken is a food dish composed of a boneless chicken breast with the drumette attached. The breast is skin-on, and the first wing joint and tender are attached while the rest of the breast is boneless.[1] The cut is also known as a frenched breast, due to the end of the wing bone getting trimmed.[2] It is also known as statler chicken, a name which originated from the Statler Hotel Boston, built in 1927 by E.M. Statler.[3]
