5 delicious chicken thigh recipes to try

You can't beat a chicken dinner. But when it comes to the type of cut, chicken thighs are often overlooked for their more favourable counterparts, like the breast. 

Chicken thighs take slightly longer to cook because they are usually on the bone, but they are much cheaper to buy in comparison to a pack of chicken breasts and some would say they are just as versatile (if not more).

Also, when it comes to flavour, chicken thighs keep their moisture for longer – which is always a plus. 

So why not pick up a packet of chicken thighs the next time you get your cook on? See below for all the recipe inspo you could need and don't forget to tag us in all your creations using @Asda and #GetYourCookOn.
