The Chicken Thigh
The Chicken Thigh: it’s moist, it’s tender and it’s the perfect meal. There are a variety of ways to cook chicken thigh, with a range of delectable marinades to enhance the flavour of your chicken thigh.
Chicken is a great source of protein. The combination of their high protein content and low fat content make them a healthy and popular choice amongst dieters and the health-conscious alike. For an extra healthy way to enjoy chicken, always choose the skinless option, as chicken skin contains high amounts of fat (which is why it tastes so good!).
Chicken thighs are a great way to enjoy a filling, healthy meal while managing your portion control. Smaller than a chicken breast, chicken thighs are more easily divided into small individual portions.
Chicken thighs are not only high in protein and low in fat. Skinless chicken thighs contain potassium, which promotes a healthy heart and muscle function.
Are you in a rush? Here’s a quick, fresh and delicious chicken thigh recipe to incorporate into your busy schedule.
Place the meat in a pulp-free orange juice and add a scoop of raspberry or apricot jam to the front of each slice of meat. Include slithers of oranges and/or peels to the orange juice gravy mixture inside of your pyrex dish. Leave in the oven for two to three hours at 176 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). It’s a quick, simple and easy recipe that guarantees the flavoursome result of the ideal chicken thigh meal.
If oranges and orange juice aren’t your thing, fear not. Replace orange juice with any other sweet flavoured fruit juice. Peaches, plums, apricots and onions are also great additions to include into your chicken thigh recipe.
