Most of the chicken recipes in my collection are for breasts, but I usually end up making them with a combination of breast (for hubby) and thigh meat (for me). Here are a few recipes which specify thighs.
Based on a Cooking Light recipe, this has been modified to suit my own tastes. The sweet onions and balsamic vinegar create a lovely contrast in flavors that pair together so well. I usually serve this with couscous or brown rice with a green vegetable such as zucchini or spinach. Reheats well for lunch the next day.
This recipe is a dramatic modification of an Asian Grilled Chicken recipe I found on Yahoo Health. It's spicy and delicious. I originally made it with chicken thighs but it also works with chicken breasts. Sid dishes I have had it with are asparagus, grilled brussels sprouts, curry couscous and rice pilaf. 5 minutes to prepare, 30 minutes to marinate. "Mmmm, those are great thighs!"
This is a quick and easy recipe that never fails to please even my picky DDs. Since chicken thighs are usually inexpensive it makes a economical meal. I like to serve these with some type of rice side dish and a green salad.
My friend Alison doesn't think she can cook, but she had me over one night for dinner and fixed this wonderful meal, thus proving herself very wrong. It's very hearty and the flavours get even better the next day. Since I'm allergic to shrimp she left it out for me, and I don't make the dish with shrimp either, but this is the recipe as she gave it to me in it's entirety. Goes very well with a loaf of crusty bread.
An easy, succulent way to prepare chicken thighs and rosemary (or any favorite herb). The thighs are compressed while cooking, making them very tender and flavorful. I use a springform pan with a large, foil-wrapped rock or brick inside to "skinny" the thighs. Recipe is easily multiplied.
I like using balsamic vinegar in my cooking, and this recipe is no exception: You can substitute chicken breasts, but I'd advise against it -- The thighs are higher in fat, but taste much better. Note: Very good over cooked rice.
This is Jacques Pepin's recipe. The resulting chicken is moist, soft, and flavorful. Use a large non-stick frying pan. If cilantro is too strong for your taste, substitute with parsley or sage. If we dont have cilantro, we prefer finely chopped sage or parsley for this recipe. In Europe, cilantro is coriander.
