Just for the heck of it, I thought I'd centralize my boneless, skinless chicken thigh recipes. They're one of my favorite things to cook with lately. Recipes specifically calling for boneless, skinless thighs are getting more popular but they are still a bit of a challenge to find. This is a short list but I expect it to grow.
I didn't care much for this style of chicken at first because they seemed to have a lot of 'yuck' on them that I felt the need to remove. However, the ones I buy in Costco now don't require any extra work - I use them as is.
I think the thighs have much more flavor than breasts. True, they have more fat but as a commenter pointed out recently, they have more iron and other nutrients too. And, although dark meat has more saturated fat than white meat, two-thirds of its fat is healthy polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat. It's not the evil option that many think it is. I still cook with white meat of course, but the dark meat is a nice change of pace.
I'm also discovered that chicken thighs are so much better than breasts in a slow cooker. They don't dry out in a crockpot like breasts tend to do.
