I have 8 bone in skin on chicken thighs and I'm looking for something new to do with them. I'm having my father over for a "thank-you" supper (he does a lot for me) and want to make a nice home cooked meal.
What are your go-to chicken thigh recipes, /ck/?
Take the skin off, thighs already release enough fat just with those little bits left after yanking off the big skin. Plus they're better oike that. I love crisping the thighs and having the insides be soft and delicious. I cut them in little pieces tho senpai.
For bone-in and skin-on my go-to recipe is yassa. Super easy, cheap, an tasty.
chick thigh tips:
1. the skin is rad and you should not discard the skin. crisp it up and brown it somehow, either by having it under dry heat in the oven or by searing it in a pan as part of your cooking process.
2. chicken thighs have a lot more connective tissue than chicken breasts so they are well-suited to longer cooking times and to methods like braising or roasting. 2-3 hours is sufficient. if you cook them too long they WILL get kind of raggy so watch out. if you want to cook them in only half an hour, use a pressure cooker.
3. save the bones for making stock.
my recommendation would be to put the chicken thighs in a pressure cooker with black beans and vegetables to make a stew.
Just posted this in another thread Zuccini Stuffed Chicken.
Shred zuccini and an onion in the food processor. Cook in a pot and add bread crumbs, an egg (make sure to mix while adding the egg so it doesn't cook it into pieces), s&p and garlic powder. I've added other veggies too like mushrooms. Stuff the filling under the chicken skin. Paprika the chicken and drizzle honey. Bake uncovered and to really brown the skin, broil just at the end.
