Chicken thighs are not only really tender and moist, they’re really flavoursome and they’re a lot cheaper than chicken breasts. They’re fattier than the breast, but this is where their flavour comes from and they make a great addition to most curries. Chicken thighs work well in stews and are ideal slow cooked, as the meat becomes super tender – it pretty much falls off the bone and melts in the mouth.
