We’ve conducted an unofficial office survey asking our staff what their favourite part of the chicken is... and the answer was almost unanimous, THIGHS! Chicken thighs have a delicious marbling of fat that makes them tender and juicy when cooked. Plus, their quick cooking time means they're perfect for almost any occassion.  

We asked ChefD to come up with a simple yet sophisticated recipe we could share and he did not disappoint.   We think you are going to love his Wood-Fired Chicken Thigh recipe.

Ingredients

  • Boneless Chicken Thighs cut into palm-sized portions 
  • Cajun seasoning (other seasonings may be used)

Thoughts From ChefD

In recent years, Canadian tastes have shifted towards chicken breasts because they are packed with protein and is very low in fat. BUT, almost any chef you speak with will tell you that they prefer the juicy flavour of chicken thighs which can be used with almost any recipe. I know I do! If you're looking for more pastured-chicken recipes, you'll love this one.
