Chicken thigh recipes

The thigh’s the limit with our collection of juicy chicken thigh recipes. Chicken thighs are a great addition to your weekly dinner rota. They’re cheaper than chicken breasts, have bags of flavour, and don’t tend to dry out during cooking.

Skin-on chicken thighs are perfect for easy traybakes, barbecues and quick midweek roasts. Skinless chicken thighs are easy to dice and are ideal for stir-fries, curries, tagines and other stovetop dishes.

This creamy tarragon chicken casserole is always a huge hit with delicious. readers. Feed the family with our chicken rice with tomato and mozzarella. Or, spice it up with Jeremy Pang’s General Tso’s chicken and our incredible miso and gochjuang butter chicken.

We think this is the UK’s best collection of tried and tested chicken thigh recipes. Which one are you going to make first?
