Remember puppy chow? That sugary dessert, probably from your childhood, where Chex or Crispix are covered in yummy goop? You may have called them “muddy buddies.” I remember them fondly. But where in our trying-to-be-better-than-before diets can we fit this?
The chicken thigh is one of my favorite cuts of chicken. Why? Because it punches chicken breast in the face, figuratively at least, flavor wise. The extra fat in the thigh creates a great flavor profile along with a delicious juicy texture. Meanwhile, chicken breast just sits there hoping you pour some seasoning on it or it will taste like nothing.
