Winner, winner chicken dinner! Chicken is an all-around crowd pleaser. It's healthy, relatively inexpensive and the kids will eat it without complaint. Plus, it's extremely versatile and easy to prepare, making it a perfect main course for busy families. So it goes without saying that mouth-watering chicken thigh recipes are in high demand. 

While the boneless, skinless chicken breast has earned a feather in its cap for being the only healthy cut of chicken, it isn't exactly true. The Food Network touts chicken thighs as one of the "10 foods that are healthier than you think," primarily because of its healthy monounsaturated fat content. They have a wealth of healthy chicken thigh recipes that are downright delicious. 

In addition to boasting healthy fat content, chicken thigh recipes also lend flavor and moisture to most dishes, something boneless, skinless breast meals lack sometimes. Another reason chicken thighs are poultry in motion? The Chicago Sun-Times food section reports that chicken thighs have twice the zinc and iron than the breast, making them more nutrient-heavy.
