TIP The Thighs Have It
Sorry, light-meat lovers, chicken thighs are super-flavorful, pack extra nutrients like iron and zinc, and the dark meat is moist and hard to overcook. After trimming, 11/4 lbs. of boneless thighs will give you about four 4-oz. portions raw—easy. For bone-in thighs, buy about 11/2 lbs. After trimming, you’ll have four 4-oz. portions (plus bones!).
