Chicken thighs

I just got some, not on purpose, and I can not take the bag back. Is this going to kill the ole diet?

Re: Chicken thighs

In what way would chicken thighs kill your diet? They are pretty much amazing.

Re: Chicken thighs

If they will, there's something wrong with your diet.

They're meat. Eat them.

Re: Chicken thighs

Just wondering. Everything you read always states that you want to eat the breast because the thigh has more fat, etc. Most of us eat Zone or Paleo and I did not know if it would hurt. I have always eaten the breast as well, so I did not know if this would do anything towards protein intake, fat intake, etc. Thank you ladies for your reply, sigh of relief.

Re: Chicken thighs

There are no bad foods, only bad diets.

are you serious? take the 'fat is bad' idea out of your head and move on. They are a great thing to eat for both protein and fat.

Re: Chicken thighs

Get a whole chicken and eat the entire thing. No bad parts there.

Then you're reading the wrong materials.

The only problem I have with thighs is that I eat them too quickly.

Re: Chicken thighs

Encourage everyone else to eat the breasts to keep the price of the tasty parts of the chicken cheap for the rest of us.
