Do you prefer chicken breasts or chicken thighs?
Let's face it everyone loves breasts, but when it comes to that fat that lies on the thighs, most of us can't help ourselves. So which do you prefer, chicken breasts or chicken thighs? (I'm talking about food and cooking here people).
I prefer thighs and dark meat. People whom eat with my family like breast and white meat so it evens out.
Unfortunately, I am not a huge chicken fan but I really only like either the wings or the breast meat. My husband like the chicken thighs the best.
I like the chicken thighs. The extra fat there makes it taste better than the dry breast meat. And I don't think the natural chicken fat is all that bad. There are worst things to eat, such as sugar.
I prefer the breasts. I have never liked the taste of the thighs. That goes for turkey as well.
I'm considered a thigh fan, but every time I get a breast piece, I just tell myself it's a healthier alternative
I like chicken thighs they taste better and the wings as well. The chicken breast taste bland to me unless it is spiced up with different ingredients then they taste okay.
I prefer breasts. I am one of those few people who actually don't like the fat on chicken. I don't usually even eat the skin! But thighs are definitely my next choice, compared to legs or other body parts. I like that it has a lot of meat on it.
My goodness, Jami, you have a perfect 100 score! That's awesome.
My score has been at 100 for three days now! Thanks, it is pretty awesome! I can't believe you don't like the fat or the skin, I have never heard anyone say that before, haha.
Haha, I know, I'm weird in that respect! It's grossed me out ever since I was a kid. Although there have been exceptions. My brother makes an awesome chicken, and the skin is fantastic on his!
I used to be a breast man, but in recent years I've been eating thighs more often. I prefer dark meat, but realize white meat is the healthier choice.
I used to prefer chicken breasts, but in recent years I've switched to thighs. I think the change happened because of an Asian dish I began to make. It's pasta-based and has chunks of chicken, a gingery-garlicky sauce and lots of fresh veggies. I found chicken breasts to be a little dry in the dish. But when I tried boneless thighs, I realized they were the key to the moistness and flavor of the Asian pasta. Now I prefer chicken thighs in many recipes. Even my breast-loving hubby agrees! : )
That dish sounds super good! You should make a recipe hub and share I would love to try it!
I agree with Jami. That sounds delicious, and I would love to see the recipe!
great idea to try it with the thighs. I have found when when using breasts you can inject them with a cajun butter flavor injectable marinade or other flavor of your choice. I have also used canned white meat chicken breast in a dish as well.
I prefer the white meat. I try to eat clean and the breast is leaner. It's also a great protein source. To keep the breast from being too dry, I always marinate it in olive oil. That way you can grill, bake, or pan fry it and it'll remain juicy and tender.
It depends on how I am preparing them, but overall I like the breast meat better. I like the taste and consistency. I do like to buy boneless thighs because they are considerably cheaper in the grocery store.
I only eat chicken breasts, I dont like dark meat. But I like to cook both. Truth is chicken thighs are juicier and tastier.
Well jamijay. I prefer to chicken thighs. You know why? Here's the facts. chicken breast is belong to white meat. White meat is less tasty. And chicken thighs is belong to red meat, red meat is more tasty than white meat. Me my self when i order fried chicken or grilled chicken into a restaurant. I always prefer to order the thigh part
I absolutely prefer chicken breasts. I like the flavor of the white meat much better. I do eat thighs and leg quarters as well they are just not my favorite. Here are a couple of hubs I have written with chicken recipes if anyone is interested. I would really love some feedback on them so I thought a reader on this question or you may be interested.

Chicken breast are my favorite and so easy to prepare can have with any salad, and is a most healthy meal.
I prefer boneless skinless chicken breast as there are various recipes for this selection meat
Chicken breast, I don't seem to be able to find as many uses for the chicken thighs. I know there are many but if you knew the pickiness of my husband then you would understand how hard it is to find some way to cook the thighs for him to eat.
Chicken breast there is more meat and taste betters and you don't have to deal with the bones.
Chicken breasts show up more in my cooking, but I find the thighs to be more moist and delicious in certain recipes. I like to glaze them w/ honey, soy, and seasoned salt then serve them w/ carrots and broccoli and rice.

White chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate. Which is your favorite and why?I have a close friend who does not like chocolate at all. He is not allergic. He just does not like chocolate. I find that strange so, I am curious about your preferences and why.

i had a warning on a hub I was working on for chicken breasts . I got a warning that all advertising was going to be eliminated. I eliminated the word breast and the warning went away. I have done several chicken breast recipes without problems.

Here you have two of my all time favorites which are chicken and bacon. I use skinned and boneless chicken thighs to make this recipe with. Chicken thighs have a lot more flavor than chicken breast and they are usually one third the price of chicken breasts. You can use chicken thighs in any recipe...

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...
