Chicken Thigh


Chicken thighs are fairly inexpensive cut of meat that come from the thigh or side of an adult chicken. Thighs are sometimes called rights to indicate side of the chicken. Thighs can be used in a variety of dishes, but are also perfect for slow roasting and cooking on their own. On occasion the thigh can also include part of the drumstick, which gives you that dark meat flavor.


Chicken Fajitas:

By cooking and shredding chicken thighs, you can get perfectly tender dark meat chicken that works very well in dishes such as fajitas, burritos and tacos. Simply strip off all of the usable meat and cook it with peppers, chili powder, onions and anything else you would like to add in a frying pan.

Grilled Chicken:

Set your oven to grill and place several chicken thighs into a pan. On the stove, mix together butter, soy sauce, parsley and garlic powder and melt into a sauce to coat the chicken with. Make sure to leave some available for basting throughout the cooking process. Baste the chicken regularly to ensure that it doesn’t dry out or burn. Grill the chicken thighs for around 20 minutes, until cooked through.
