If your freezer is packed with chicken thighs (hey, they're cheap!), but you're running out of ideas on what to do with them, Rach promises that the possibilities are endless.
"Chicken thighs are the most valuable product, I believe, in the entire meat department," she says. "They are cheap, they're affordable and they are really forgiving."
In fact, in mere minutes, Rach rattled off a bunch of her favorite ways to cook chicken thighs.
1. Make chicken cacciatore
"Brown chicken thighs in oil [or] ghee, with salt and pepper," Rach says. "Put them into tomato sauce with dried mushrooms and you have cacciatore."

3. Make a chicken salad
You can take this one two ways, really! You can make a traditional chicken salad with mayo OR you can toss some seasoned chicken thigh meat on top of a salad. (Sure, chicken breast would be healthier, but if you have chicken thighs, why not use 'em?)
4. Use them in a stew or chicken pot pie
Rach uses chicken breast meat in this Chicken Pot Pie Casserole, but that doesn't mean you can't swap in chicken thighs instead.
"You can do anything with [chicken thighs] that you would do with a chicken breast," Rach says. "It'll just be more flavorful, quite frankly."
5. Make chicken piccata
You might be thinking that chicken piccata is traditionally made with chicken breasts — but again, Rach says that doesn't matter.
"Make [chicken thighs] with wine, lemon, capers and parsley on top," she says.
6. Make chicken adobo
PLUS, once you're done with that, you can even use the adobo sauce to dress steamed broccoli, Rach says. (Only Rach could have us craving broccoli!)
