These are the best chicken thigh recipes ever. Recipes for how to roast them, grill them, smoke them, bake them or make them in the Instant Pot.
By now, you know that my love for chicken thighs runs deep. Bone-in, boneless, smoked, grilled, baked – I’ll take all of the chicken thigh recipes I can get.
I’ve rounded up all of my favorite variations on the blog and I’m sharing them here! I think chicken thighs are the best because they have more flavor, AND if you buy bone-in, you can use the bones to make bone broth. They’re also often on sale, so it’s a great budget buy. I can’t wait for you to try these out, and for you to tell me which ones you like best 🙂 .
