Can anyone tell me the difference between "boneless, skinless chicken breast" and "boneless, skinless chicken breast... with rib meat?" What exactly is rib meat? No luck so far finding a clear answer to this online. I notice that the "with rib meat" variety is usually cheaper. Is it less healthy?

Compared to boneless/skinless, chicken breasts with rib meat have more fat content; thus, taste better. The rib meat is exactly that, meat that surrounds the ribs.
A plain boneless breast is stripped completely of this, which is why they are more expensive. Chicken breasts "with rib meat" have a better flavor, but you're not really missing any added nutrition (i.e. protein) from the "rib meat".

great reply post.. took the words out of my mouth
skinless boneless is the good stuff bro and the ones with rib meat may contain a bit more fat but its not deprived of the amnt of protein still in it.. so no worries about the protein content.. u might be getting a few grams of fat w/ the rib meat added
not like its really going to hinder that much on anyone reallyCellucor Representative - COR-Performance Specialist

i get boneless chicken breast with rib meat cause it's much cheaper. You can just cut out the rib meat if you really want too, the fat is visible. Another thing I noticed as opposed to regular boneless, skinless chicken breast is the sodium content. W/ the rib meat each 4oz serving of my brand has 330mg of sodium where regular has 85mg of sodium.
