If forced to name my favorite part of the chicken, it would have to be the thigh. I’ll happily eat a fried drumstick, a spicy sticky chicken wing, a tender breast with or with or without the skin. But thighs? Winner, winner…well, I won’t say it. Juicy, tender, moist, flavorful, hard to overcook; it’s hands down the best part of the bird. And you can cook them in so many different ways.

10 Chicken Thigh Recipes

Sautéed chicken thighs, braised chicken thighs, roasted chicken thighs, baked chicken thighs, broiled chicken thighs, grilled chicken thighs, stir fried chicken thighs, chicken thigh kebabs, crock pot or slow cooker chicken thighs, instant pot or pressure cooker chicken thighs, chicken thighs in soups, stews and chilis. There is nothing a chicken thigh can’t do.

Here are 10 different reasons to grab a package or two of chicken thighs as you pass the poultry counter at the market.
