Chicken Thigh Recipes That Prove They're The Best Part Of The Bird

Chicken breasts are stupid -- let's talk thighs.

Chicken breast are one of the most popular cuts of the bird to eat. It's easy to understand why: the breast is boneless, oftentimes skinless and just so easy to cook. But it is also far from the best of the bird. The most flavor is found not in the breast, but in the hindquarters. Chicken thighs is where it's at. Sure, they might have more dark meat than white, but they also taste like something.

Here's the thing most people don't know about chicken thighs: they're really easy to cook -- just as easy as chicken breast (even a little easier because they're less likely to dry out). Also, as a bonus, thighs are cheaper than the breast. And, it usually comes with skin on which means so much crispy goodness.

It's time to get on board with chicken thighs. Here are 20 recipes to get you started.
