A.K.A

Chicken thighs and drumsticks.

What is it?

Chicken legs consist of both the thigh and the drumstick and are referred to as chicken leg quarters if both pieces are still intact. Usually sold bone-in and skin-on, thighs and drumsticks also show up skinless, and, in the case of thighs, boneless as well.

Don’t have it?

You can use chicken leg quarters, separated if recipe calls for thighs and drumsticks.

How to prep:

Remove excess fat and skin.

How to store:

Refrigerate or freeze for longer storage.
