Chicken thighs are the most delicious part of the chicken, and the perfect protein as you don't have to sacrifice flavor for convenience. Chicken thighs are juicier, cheaper, and easier to cook than chicken breasts. Plus, this meaty cut of chicken is so versatile, it works in plenty of different dishes. From tacos to Chinese take-out inspired recipes, chicken thighs can be used in countless dishes.
A “thigh with back portion” is produced by cutting a leg quarter (70901) at the joint between the tibia and the femur. The drumstick, patella, and abdominal fat are removed. The thigh with back portion consists of the thigh, attached back portion, and associated fat. The tail and meat adjacent to the ilium (oyster meat) may or may not be present.
