Thighs are my favorite part of the chicken! They are especially good in Chicken Cacciatore, chicken gumbo, or jambalaya.

My favorite is: Chicken and Rice Bake

In a 2 qt. baking dish mix 3/4 cup rice, 1 1/3 cup water, 1 can (10 3/4 oz) cream of chicken soup top with chicken, sprinkle with onion powder, salt, pepper, the last few minutes of baking sprinkle with cheese if its skinless, also cover if its skinless. Bake at 375* for 45 min. or till chicken is done.

Oh ya! I am with you all the way on that Constance! My hubby actually prefers thighs to any other cut.

I do all the things you do and we also love them just seasoned with salt and pepper, then seared on all sides and finished in the oven. They are wonderful this way.

Cut up the thighs and brown them in a saute pan. Remove to a plate.
Saute some cut up onion and minced garlic.
Add a can of Rotel tomatoes or a jar of salsa
Season with cumin
Add a cup of rice and 2 cups of chicken broth.
Return the met to the pan.
Cover, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes or until the rice is cooked.

One of my favorite recipes for chicken is to put them in a saute pan (covered) with bbq sauce. You can make your own sauce or buy at store to save more time. Also you can make a sauce with soy sauce and honey, ginger, garlic, etc.

Coq au vin or brushed with mustard and sprinkled with seasoned salt and baked in the oven. Yummy.
