      Disadvantages

      Good quality meat, packed with flavour and juiciness

      I was a little suspicious when I came across a curry recipe which used chicken thighs instead of breasts, as I had always been brought up to believe that breast in best. But I sought these out in Tescos and eventually tracked them down amidst the vast array of other bits of chickens. I began to warm to this product when I saw the price- at £3 for a pack of 5, they were a lot cheaper than the breast fillets. But I wondered if the quality of the meat would be compromised. It wasn't! These skinless, boneless thighs were plump and tender. The only noticeable difference when I looked at them was that they were slightly darker than breast meat, and had a little fat on them. But we're talking a small ridge on each thigh, not a full on spare tyre, so it's really easy to cut off if you want a truly lean portion. Cookingwise, these are no different to chicken breasts, and they're just as easy to chop. Each thigh is slightly smaller than a breast though, so you might need to use a bit more per portion. The real difference lies in the taste. Thigh meat is a bit juicier and more flavoursome than breast meat, and I found it really enhanced the curry I was cooking. The people I was cooking for also noticed the tastiness of the meat, as chicken can sometimes taste quite bland, and lose its flavour. So full marks for taste too. I'm now a thigh convert, and use it in lots of chicken dishes instead of breast, for a better flavour. The low price is a bonus!
