Think dark meat is bad for you? Think again. Recipe.com’s own health and nutrition expert, Monica Reinagel, recently filed an article on why the dark meat of chicken has gotten a bad rap … unfairly, it turns out. Dark meat actually contains higher levels of the amino acid taurine, which health experts believe helps protect women against heart disease. Even better, dark meat (like chicken thighs) is often significantly cheaper than white meat. Oh, and did we mention the best part? It’s a lot more tasty! If you don’t believe us, try whipping up one of these supremely flavorful chicken thigh recipes tonight. (Don’t worry, you don’t have much to lose — each takes less than 30 minutes to make!)
Boring ol’ chicken and pasta gets a kick in the pants: the succulent dark chicken thighs pair perfectly with pasta that’s topped with a chipotle-tomato sauce and grated queso blanco cheese.
Pineapple gets top billing here, but sweet pepper, curry and coconut milk come together in an tropical-inspired chicken thigh dish that’s sure to steal the show.
A piquant blend of spices (coriander, cumin, cinnamon and cayenne) give this grilled chicken its kick, while a warm bean-and-avocado salad adds a cooler counterpoint.
