Ginger Soy Chicken Thighs

Side these sweet and flavorful chicken thighs with brown rice for an easy, weeknight dinner!

Ginger Soy Chicken Thighs

I’ve mentioned it a couple (hundred? 😉 ) times that we are big chicken eaters. I usually buy a large quantity of boneless chicken breasts and use them for a whole variety of dinners. It’s versatile, healthy and when it’s on sale, much easier on my grocery budget.

While we do love those boneless chicken breasts, I do also buy drumsticks (my kids fave) and boneless chicken thighs.

Chicken thighs are really cost efficient. But,they do get a bad wrap due because they are higher in fat than the chicken breast. But,actually, it’s the skin that gives them that higher fat, so, I opt for the skinless version.
