Do You Know How Great Chicken Thighs Are And All The Possibilities?

    You can make almost anything out of a chicken thigh that you can make out of a chicken breast and in most cases you'll find that chicken thighs will cost you one third the cost of chicken breast.

    Just remove the skin and bone from the chicken thighs and you'll have a great piece of chicken to work with. I have one of the little heavy meat hammers that I can use to beat my chicken thighs flat with.

    Let me tell you a secret here if your beating chicken flat. Lay down one sheet of plastic wrap and then lay your skinned and de-boned chicken thighs down on the plastic wrap and cover them with another layer of plastic wrap. You can then beat the thighs flat with a meat hammer and have delicious pieces of chicken to work and cook with.

    Taco Chicken Salad "or" Delicious Chicken Taco's.

    I buy a pack of the dry taco seasoning and sprinkle it over six chicken thighs that I have beaten flat. Then I put them onto a hot grill that I've sprayed with vegetable cooking spray and I cook the chicken thighs on both sides on the grill until done. I then cut the chicken thighs up into very thin strips.

    You can then use the cut up taco seasoned grilled chicken to make taco chicken salads or make it into chicken tacos.

    Taco Chicken Salad

    I use lettuce, tomato, mango, sweet onion, bell pepper strips, 5 cheese Mexican cheese, salsa, guacamole, and sour cream on my taco chicken salads. The little strips of taco seasoned chicken goes on top of the salad.

    Chicken Tacos

    With my chicken tacos I put the taco chicken, lettuce, tomato, sweet onion, 5 cheese Mexican cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and jalapenos on flour tortillas or hard shell taco shells and people love them. I usually serve everything in bowls and let people put what they want on their own chicken tacos.

    The Best Homemade Chicken Tenders Or Chicken Strips Ever

    Take the skin and bone from your chicken thighs and cut each chicken thigh up into 3-4 pieces.

    In one bowl put one egg and a cup of milk and beat it well with a wire whisk.

    In another bowl put a cup of flour, a teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon of black pepper, and a fourth teaspoon of cayenne pepper and mix it all together well.

    Now you'll need hot oil either in a deep pan or pot or a home deep fryer to cook your chicken strips in.

    Step 1
    Put your chicken strips into first the milk and egg mixture and then into the flour mixture.

    Step 2
    Fry your breaded chicken in the hot oil until golden brown. Stay there with it because your pieces of chicken will cook quickly and you don't want it to burn.

    Barbecue Anyone

    Make your chicken strips or chicken fingers by deep frying them and after you have them done put them into a large bowl just after they come out of the deep fryer and pour a cup of your favorite barbecue sauce into the bowl and stir the homemade chicken strips around to coat them well with barbecue sauce. I promise you they are delicious this way.

    Never leave a pot or pan your deep frying in. Stay there with it until the chicken is cooked and the burner is turned off under the food. A fire can happen quickly. Keep a lid ready to put on the pot or pan if a fire were to happen. If your going to be doing a lot of cooking you will be a lot better off to buy a home deep fryer to use for your home deep frying.

    Chicken And Food Safety

    Always use a strong bleach solution made by adding a cup of household bleach to a gallon of water to clean up anywhere that you've worked with chicken. Bacteria and raw chicken go hand in hand and it's important to prevent cross  contamination. I suggest to everyone that they avoid wooden cutting boards as they will crack and bacteria will grow in cracks. You don't want to make yourself or anyone else sick so always use bleach and soap and water to clean up anywhere that you work with chicken, cut up chicken or cook chicken.

      My husband's favorite piece of chicken is the thigh. I like finding them boneless at the grocery store and use them in place of breasts in dishes. They are far more moist.

        Yes they are and in most cases about one third the price of chicken breast.
