Yet Another Reason to Love Chicken Thighs
Dark-meat chicken is tasty and cheap, but best of all, it tends to stay juicy longer than breast meat does, so there's a low likelihood of overcooking it. The broiler is the key here; it turns boneless, skinless cuts into a filling dinner in just 10 minutes. A sweet, spicy, chunky salsa (made of cucumber, red bell pepper, avocado and lime) is the perfect topper, and you can serve the chicken over a bed of crunchy romaine to add even more veggies to your plate.
