Chicken Thigh Fajitas

Fajitas are the mainstay of every mid-market Mexican joint in America. And they’re not really even Mexican. They’re Tex-Mex, as my father liked to remind us almost every Friday night.  He was a big fan of telling us “there were no Fajitas when I was growing up in southern Arizona!”  […]

Chicken Thigh Swedish Style Meatballs

I don’t live in Sweden.  It might feel like I’m in Sweden right now.  It’s 12 ° F and snowy, but this is Ohio.  I’ve never even been to Sweden, unless an Ikea (really, like five different Ikeas) count as having been to Sweden. (They don’t. I know.) But one […]

Chicken Thigh Gyros

I love gyros. When I lived in San Francisco, there was a Greek place on the corner at the edge of Golden Gate Park. It’s not that it was good or bad, it’s that it was on the edge of the park. I’d find myself walking through the park with […]

Honey and Sriracha Glazed Chicken

How could you possibly go wrong with hot, spicy, sweet, and crunchy all in on dish?  You can’t.  Unless you don’t like spicy.  Then maybe you’re not the intended audience for this dish.  This honey and Sriracha chicken is great in a bunch of ways:  It’s quick and easy to […]

Chicken Thigh Parmesan

If you enjoy The Chicken Thigh Guy, check out my other food project: The Weekly Menu. Chicken Parm probably isn’t Italian. It’s Italian American. More accurately, it’s East Coast Red Checkered Table Cloth raffia wrapped wine bottle Italian American classic, and it’s delicious. While the dish is often made with […]

Chipotle Chicken Chopped Salad

This trainwreck of a chopped salad is one of our household favorites, a dish that makes it to the table, or the couch in front of the TV, several times a month.  It’s fast, it’s delicious, and it’s filling.  This isn’t a light salad. It’s a salad that makes you […]

Pickle Brined Chicken Bites

Pickled and fried chicken are a natural pairing, but they usually arrive on the side, after the chicken is cooked – not as a key ingredient in their preparation. I had heard of pickle-brined chicken, but the first time I actually tasted it was a few years ago at the […]

Easy Chicken Teriyaki

Real Teriyaki  is amazing.  High quality meats or seafood slowly  grilled over impossibly high quality charcoal, caringly tended and basted with an almost magical sauce made from simple ingredients.  It’s a way to really make the quality of the produce and technique show though. This isn’t authentic Japanese Teriyaki  – […]

Chicken Thigh Nuggets

Welcome to The Chicken Thigh Guy.While you’re here, check out my other project – The Weekly Menu. Anyone who says they don’t love chicken nuggets is probably lying. You can find vegetarian nuggets, nuggets tossed in sauce, nuggets on sandwiches, and any big sporting event there’s probably a tray of […]
