How To Make Juicy, Flavorful Chicken Thighs + Recipe
You really can’t go wrong with having chicken thighs for dinner. They’re flavorful, juicy and effortlessly delicious. They require no extra help, they’re simply delicious just the way they are. They’re also a very cost effective and reliable way to cook a delectable meal that your family will love. However, often people are intimidated by cooking these juicy gems because they’re used to cooking chicken breast. We’re here to help - here’s the lowdown on cooking chicken thighs along with a simple recipe we love. Order natural chicken online and taste the Beck & Bulow difference.
Humanely Raised Chicken Hand Cut By Local Butchers
When you’re baking chicken thighs, you want to start out by patting them dry with paper towels. Don’t wash them in your sink - this just spreads potential bacteria all over your most used kitchen tool. Any bacteria that’s there will be completely eliminated with the heat of cooking, so there’s no reason to worry. Patting them dry will allow the skin to get that mouthwatering, crispy texture that everyone loves.
Any moisture on the skin will prevent them from searing so make sure not to skip this crucial step. Our chicken thighs are bone-in, which is great because the bone actually helps keep the meat extra juicy, acting as a physical seal to keep the moisture inside where it belongs.

You’ll want to bake chicken thighs at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-45 minutes, or until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the perfect length of time combined with the ideal temperature to give your chicken thighs a crispy, flavorful outside and a juicy, tender inside.
However, there’s no way to keep every single bit of the juices inside the chicken - some will inevitably seep out during cooking. For this reason, make sure to use a baking sheet with a rim to prevent juice from leaking out into the bottom of your oven. Place an order and try our chicken for home delivery. You’ll receive incredibly tender chicken with outstanding flavor.
All Natural, Vegetarian Fed Chicken For Home Delivery
Our chicken comes from a small co-op of family farms. They’re humanely raised and cage free, with plentiful space to roam freely in cozy, well-ventilated barns with access to the outdoors. They enjoy unlimited access to water and nutritious vegetarian food supplemented with enzymes, essential oils and vitamins.
The chickens frequently relax in their cozy beds made of wood shavings and rice hulls. They are a Cobb Hubbard hybrid breed, carefully selected for the great flavor and consistency of the meat as well as their docile temperament. The barn attendants are trained in chicken behavior and take care to make the environment as naturally supportive as possible. Like all of our meat, this chicken is hand cut by master local butchers.

The goal is to raise these chickens to be as wholesome and healthy as possible. Because this is done with care and attention, these chickens are never administered any antibiotics of any kind. They are never exposed to chemicals like bleach and the packaging is completely free of any preservatives. This meat is naturally juicy and delicious, and is never injected with any type of filler or flavor enhancer.
If you’re used to factory farmed chicken, you might think ours seem small in comparison. This is because they’re never given any amount of steroids or growth hormones. Their small size is just the way nature intended them to grow. Shop quality chicken online from Beck & Bulow - we’re confident you’re going to love it as much as we do.
