    Hiya Guys,

    Is there a difference in protein content for boneless chicken thigh and leg??

    Reason I ask is theres quite a bit of difference in price, my local butcher charges 99p / lb for thigh and about 3..something / lb for breast??

    Thigh has more fat in it (not a bad thing imo) the protein level will be slightly (just slightly) lower in the thighs.

    The thighs will no doubt provide more protein per cost price, people go for breasts because they are 'nicer'

    The fat in the thighs keeps the meat moist, where as you need to cook breasts for less time to avoid the meat becoming graining and dry. When chicken breast is cooked but still really moist and juicy, it is fantastic but it's hard to time it just right every time. If you want cheap protein that cooks consistantly well and is guaranteed to be flavorsome, go for the thighs. Nice chicken thigh recipe below as it happens.

    I agree.

    The thigh is also has lot more flavour as it does a lot more work whilst attached to the chicken. Prior to being beheaded of course. Not always the case if it's a battery chicken. That's another argument entirely.

    that obviously would make up alot of the extra weight you get. you also tend to get more meat though too, and more fat. If your bulking they're ideal and affordable.
    Can everyone stop thinking so much.please?

    When I was poor I used to eat chicken thighs with pasta all the time, much better taste than breast and the fats would help as well, so on taste along, I'm a thigh man!
