Yes, they are a dark meat, which means that they are higher in calories and fats, but some of those are actually healthy monounsaturated fats.

A three ounce skinless chicken thigh contains 170 calories, 9 grams of fat, and 3 grams of saturated fat.

Chicken thighs are moist, full of flavour and are generally more affordable than breasts. Keep your portions under control, but definitely include them in your weekly dinner routine.

Remember: It is important to make sure that a chicken thigh is cooked under the correct conditions as raw poultry can be contaminated with salmonella or campylobacter bacteria.

  1. Wash your hands correctly before handling the poultry.

  3. Use a separate chopping board for veggies and meat.


Put your leftovers in the fridge or freezer 2-3 hours after they were prepared to avoid bacterial growth. When reheating the food, make sure youo cook it to 74°C and try not to reheat leftovers more than once.
