19 All-Star Chicken Thigh Recipes
Are we just over dry, blah chicken breasts? Don’t get me wrong, breasts are good for when you’re mixing the chicken with other stuff (casseroles, soups & stews, salads, etc.) but as far as being the star of the show? I think chicken thighs are where the flavor’s at. And it’s almost impossible to dry them out or overcook them.
The last few recipes I've created made specifically for thighs have gotten lots of comments and emails from folks who were are thankful to have more dark meat recipes to choose from so I thought I’d reach out to some of my favorite food blogs and put together this collection!
Be sure to stop by these blogs and give them some love for helping out with this collection!
All of the following recipes were made for chicken thighs and/or legs (almost all recipes for legs and thighs are interchangeable).
And for the love of Foghorn Leghorn, please don't substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts for these recipes. Dark meat - particularly bone-in, skin-on pieces - cook totally different than boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
I hope you enjoy!!
Here are a few recipes made with legs that can TOTALLY be made using chicken thighs too!
And here's a bonus recipe! This one is for a whole chicken but could totally be used to for thighs only!
