Thighs are one of the most versatile and affordable sources of meat protein in the supermarket today. In a pinch, you can make just about any recipe calling for a chicken breast with a thigh to stretch your family’s dollar. Pilgrim’s natural thigh meat is lean and high in protein, a very important nutrient for your entire family, especially children.
For an interesting new chicken dish, try mixing up some apricot preserves, dry onion soup mix and a cup of French Dressing. Pour it over the thighs in a baking dish and in an hour you’ll have a delightful meal to thrill your family’s taste buds. The sweetness of the apricot and the savory taste of the onion combine to create a new family favorite.
For something more exotic, combine spicy hot sauce, cumin, lime, cilantro, black beans, olive oil, sweet potatoes, bell peppers, onions, all-spice, garlic and chicken broth with browned thighs in a crock pot. In a couple of hours your tongue will be doing the tango in excitement over this Latin dish.
