The Thighs Have It

March 27, 2018

The popularity of chicken thighs has some supermarkets scrambling to keep them in stock. No wonder cooks love them; they are inexpensive, tender, juicy and easy to cook. Grill, pan fry, bake or add them to soup. They become something special when rubbed with a mixture of fresh herbs and grainy mustard.
