My Best Chicken Thigh Recipes for Easy Weeknight Dinners ~ chicken thighs are quick, cheap, and universally loved by everybody in the family, you simply can’t beat them for weeknight meals.
My Chicken Thighs with White Beans and Greens is based on an Mediterranean classic.
The Italians have been combining beans and greens for generations, and when you add chicken thighs into the mix, you’ve got an extraordinarily hearty (and healthy!) meal that comes together in a flash.
Same pan, same Mediterranean theme, but a totally different take on chicken thighs,
my Tuscan Chicken Thigh recipe is rich and comforting for chilly nights. I make sure to keep the browned chicken skin above the bubbling sauce so it stays nice and crispy.
My Chicken Thighs in Lemon Sauce is a favorite around here,
and it proves that everyday meals don’t have to be bland or boring. The silky smooth Greek lemon sauce is super creamy, but surprisingly dairy free. It’s made with the same easy technique I use in my Greek Avgolemono Soup.
Speaking of creamy, my Chicken Thighs Marsala is so luxurious it can double as a romantic meal for two.
Marsala wine and a touch of cream make this a restaurant quality dish. Marsala is an Italian fortified wine with a long shelf life, and it’s the secret ingredient in lots of different sauces. But be sure to look for a good quality Marsala, and skip anything labeled ‘cooking wine’.
This Creamy Chicken with Wild Rice and Mushrooms is a welcome back to fall meal if there ever was one.
Wild rice and mushrooms are a classic Autumn pairing, and make these chicken thighs special. Wild rice is easy to cook and adds such a pop of color and texture to one pot dinners like this.
Lemon Chicken Biryani introduces an exotic note into the family dinner routine,
and yet this chicken thigh recipe still comes together in about an hour. Once you’ve got the handful of easily available spices in your cupboard this aromatic chicken and rice dish will become a staple in your dinner rotation.
