American fast food companies prefer bland, white chicken meat, but do you know why it’s the leg that Indians like?

When it comes to chicken do you like your meat white or dark? It is a question that will puzzle many of us in India. (Isn’t all chicken white meat, we may ask.) And it only makes sense to us if we frame it differently: breast or leg? This is sometimes regarded as a politically incorrect description so the white vs. dark distinction is more widely used in America.
