    Default Chicken thighs - ideas

    They were on sale, 10 pounds for 7 bucks. OK, so what would be a quick and
    easy, yet pleasing dish to prepare? I was going to deep fry them but I
    don't want all the mess. Something in the oven would be cool.

    I got this recipe from eGullet several years ago. It can be done
    either in the oven or the crockpot. It is about the only dish I make
    in my little used crockpot..and it does turn out well. Not sure how it
    would be if it were cooked in the oven...

    The following is from the recipe as written by the late author, Fifi:

    >I use skinless, boneless chicken thighs. For every 4 thighs, use about 1/4 cup of paprika. Salt the thighs fairly generously. Put them in a plastic zip type baggy and pour in the paprika. Toss around and kinda massage the thighs to get the paprika coating all surfaces. This will look like an insane amount of paprika. Slice onion, about one medium yellow or white onion for each 2 thighs. Layer the onion in the bottom of the crock pot or heavy pot with lid on (e.g. Le Creuset). Place the thighs on top of the onion in one layer. From there, several cooking options are available and seem to result in the same delicious result...

There is often a wide variation of liquid depending upon how much water the onions contain, and that varies a lot.

I like the idea of cooking it down on the top of the stove then adding a big dollop of sour cream.


    I think LC refers to Le Crueset..

    Me, I love using smoked paprika for this dish... If you have some,
    add it.

    These are bone-in rather than boneless?

    They can be prepared Buffalo style, just like wings, only
    a little meatier.

    Well sure, seasoned salt is my favorite way to bake a chicken. I use a lot
    of it. But not tonight, though.

    Sometimes simple is best. We got some chicken thighs not franken chicken
    thighs a couple of years ago. Just a little salt and pepper over a
    campfire. Far enough away from the fire to keep from being burned. It
    took a little longer but the oakwood smoke and the chicken fat on the
    pieces and the salt and pepper was just right.
    The thighs are flavorful meat.

    Mmm hmmmm. That is the quickest, easiest and most delicious, I agree. What I
    love to do more than anything lately (not as quick and easy but still not
    rocket science) is debone and marinate overnight in soy sauce, brown sugar,
    cider vinegar, and fresh crushed garlic, then bake or broil. Great over rice
    or just plain.

    Bake them in the oven, then strip the meat and use it in dishes
    calling for cooked chicken. Freeze it in one cup portions aimed at
    this kind of use.

    I like deviled chicken thighs myself. I bet you can do a general
    search for a recipe.

    Nice frugal find!!

    Are they skinless fillets, or bone in?

    Bone in are great for roasting in the oven........ just rub or marinade
    with whatever you want and lay them on some lemon slices in a pan and
    roast to your hearts content.

    If they're thigh fillets (and 10lbs for $7 is an absolute *steal*!!), you
    can lay them out, rub on some pesto, sprinkle some fetta, throw on some
    basil leaves or maybe a semi-dried tomato, roll up and wrap in pancetta
    and bake in the oven.

    Or you could do a Champagne Chicken.........

    Paul,

    I'd suggest my Thai Thigh Chicken Satay but it's more an overnight thing.

    See: http://i17.tinypic.com/3y5hf6o.jpg

    Best,

    How about an orange sauce, or some other fruit sauce?
    I normally just reduce some freshly squeezed OJ down, then maybe add a
    dash of brandy if I'm in the mood for it.
    I find OJ to be plenty sweet enough on it's own, so I don't add any
    sweeteners.

    With 10lbs, I think you have enough for a few nights. No reason to
    be picky about what you don't feel like having tonight.

    This would be my dish as well. I debone chicken thighs in about 15
    seconds each.

    Jerk chicken tacos would be my next up (boneless, simmered in
    Walkerswood paste + water).

    I have thighs coming out of the oven in about 5 minutes.

    Progresso bread crumbs, a little season salt, poultry seasoning,
    and a bit of garlic powder.

    Bake at 400 for 40 minutes or so.

    I vacuum seal them three to a package with marinade and freeze. As for
    recipes, baking, frying, or grilling would be my choices. Don't know why,
    but I really like thigh meat.

    I am leaning towards the curry idea now. Yeah, curry - I have a prepared
    tadka in the cupboard.

    Still an excellent buy!!


    If I ever find any cheap chicken thighs (usually around $3.99kg) I buy some
    for the pooch. She loves them.

    And I usually end up taking a couple out to roast up for us..... even though
    the SO says "Great, you're feeding me dog food!!" :-)

    Tadka?? As in this.....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaunk



    But curry is good........ 'specially if it's cool/cold where you are :-)


    I take the skin off if I'm doing qhole thighs in a curry, and probably cut
    them in two if they are too big..... but the skin comes off, can't stand
    wobbly skin, it has to be crisp!!
