Chicken Thighs Are A Good Thing!

  • Chicken thighs get a bad wrap because we think of dark meat as unhealthy.
  • Chicken thighs provide good fats which lowers your bad cholesterol and raises the good. It’s the skin that has saturated fat or "bad" fat.
  • The thigh is almost impossible to overcook resulting in a consistently moist cut.
  • Braising thighs is the best method for moisture because they contain the bone along with connective tissue like cartilage. Braising unlocks a greater amount of collagen that breaks down into gelatin which contributes to the juiciness.
  • The thigh is the easiest cut for the bbq on a medium heat – they are naturally juicy and protected by the skin.
  • Bone in chicken thighs cost about one-third of the price per lb of boneless skinless chicken breasts.
  • Welcome the underrated delicious thigh, one of the richest parts of the bird.
