Deboned chicken thighs are a really useful and versatile protein. Buying bone-in skin-on chicken thighs and deboning your own is the budget-friendly choice.

Look for special offers in your grocery store and you can then decide to use it with the bone-on skin-on as you bought it, or you can debone the chicken and choose to leave the skin on or off depending on your needs.

Once you get used to deboning your own chicken you will never go back to paying a premium price.

One of my absolute favourite uses for a deboned chicken thigh is Crispy Grilled Chicken Thighs. I leave the skin on and grill it, so the skin is crispy and the meat super juicy. You can cut this up and use it in a wrap, sandwich, or on a salad. The taste is amazing!
