Chicken Thighs vs. Chicken Breast

We vote Chicken Thighs in this debate every time!!

Let's breakdown the age old debate:

  • Fat Content! Chicken thighs contain more fat than chicken breasts, which is a plus on keto and it is a good kind – mono-saturated fat to be exact.
  • Moisture! The dark meat in the Chicken Thighs is kept moist by the layer of skin that's usually kept on thighs when sold at supermarkets. Most chicken breast meat is sold skinless and ends up being drier when you cook it.
  • Flavor! In the flavor department, chicken thighs win hands down because the dark meat naturally has more intense and flavorful edge to them.

How to Make the Crispiest Skin

Everyone knows that the best part of chicken thighs is the crispy skin and this recipe give you the crispiest skin ever!!

Here’s our tip for getting the most amazing crisped skin: Baking powder and salt!

That’s right. This magic combination dries the skin out and you end up with crispy skin perfection.

Also, there’s two ways you can cook these for ultimate crisp.

  1. Bake in the oven at 425°F and cook for about 35 minutes or until internal temperature reaches about 170-175°F .
  2. Bake in the oven at at 375°F and cook for about 40 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F , then broil for 3-5 minutes.

Both of these methods will result in juicy and tender thighs with an amazingly crunchy outside.
