I have a bunch that I want to use up. Tonight's recipe will use up about half of them. I'd like to make a dinner tomorrow that I can quickly throw together and shove in the oven that will use up a pound or more of thigh meat. I have chicken recipes I can fall back on, but since it's thigh meat, it's a bit richer and I know there are just some recipes out there that specifically call for it. Any ideas? :)

White Chicken Chili!!!

Chicken and dumplings (I have a supper easy recipe if your intrested)

Chicken breast has gotten way to pricey and I now mainly use chicken thighs.

I love the SBRC white chicken chili! YUM!!

I frequently substitute thighs for breasts in any recipe. Thighs have more chicken flavor.

Sorry it took me so long to respond, but here is the recipe for another time...

3 tablespoons butter
1 med. onion chopped
5 med. carrots chopped
1/4 teaspoon thyme (you can sub any kind of herb you like here)
1/4 cup of flour
2 cloves of garlic
1 3/4 cup Chicken stock
1 1/2 lbs of chicken cut up
hand full of frozen peas
--
2 tablespoons fresh dill (again you can sub any kind of herb you want)
3/4 cup of flour
1 3/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of milk

Add butter, onion,carrots, and thyme to pot and cook for about 8 minutes. Add flour and cook for another 2 minutes. Then add garlic, stock and chicken and stir well. Cook for 20 minutes. Then stir well, add a hand full of peas if you like.
Mix all dry ingredients for dumplings, add milk and mix until blended.
Drop into chicken mixture and cook for another 10 minutes.

I sometimes will add extra chicken stock if I think it's getting to thick. I have made this recipe about 25 times and each time I think I have did something different with it. Really easy to make.

Thanks everyone! I'm going to make something today and freeze it. Tonight I'll be using up the other half. Last night DH wanted me to get my shopping done and actually got home from work early. That meant he and the kids fended for themselves for dinner. :rolleyes:
