I never buy boneless/skinless. It's way too expensive (I buy the natural kind). I almost always buy a whole or cut-up chicken.

However, I will occasionally buy bone-in breasts on sale and freeze them. It's a little bit of a pain to bone them, but once you're done you get the bones to make stock. I have found that 2 de-boned chicken breasts are enough for a meal for 4 people. I cut them horizontally since they are quite thick and thus get four pieces. Or I use just one as part of a stir fry or for soup

Just recently switched to always bone in. I bake them on the bone or crock pot on the bone. to serve, I remove them from the bone and all bones go in a freezer bag with ends of celery and carrots, garlic and onion tops until full. When full - easy stock.
