    In praise of thighs

    I love chicken thighs. Dark, tasty, succulent flesh wrapped in crispy skin or simply naked. Can't understand why breast is so popular. Dry and tasteless.

    Thighs are close to heaven

    Amen, peril!

    Just a few weeks ago, I officially decreed that I'm not eating dry breasts anymore -- can't stand 'em -- and will substitute all recipes with juicy thighs instead.

    I used to be a breast man but after becoming primal I'm now a thigh man...

    What are we talking about again?

    Yesterday's dinner was four or five chicken thighs (bone-in and skin-on, of course!) and a few drumsticks, tossed in the crockpot and adulterated, er, improved with the addition of Italian spices, olive oil, a drained can of diced tomatoes, a drained can of olives, a cup or so of chopped onion and half of a bell pepper, sliced thin. Primal chicken cacciatore - heavenly.

    But with chicken breast? It would have been downright nasty. Yay for thighs!
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Thighs are definitely the tastiest part of the chicken.

    Well, after the skin . . . .

    And the liver . . . .

    And the heart. . . .

    Yum! I buy thighs 95% of the time... cheaper AND tastier? Fairly flavorful even when you get the boneless/skinless ones? Yes please!

    The only time I buy chicken breast is if it's on sale to the point where it's cheaper than thighs, and I save it for dishes where it's gonna be covered in fat (wrapped in bacon, drowned in coconut milk) because otherwise the stuff's just gross.

    Another in agreement that the thighs are best! We had the Coconut Curry from the PB cookbook last night with chicken thighs. Yum! I do sometimes buy chicken breast meat for quick lunches/BAS.
