We love chicken thighs because they are always moist and flavorful. Boneless thighs are at least $1 more a pound than bone-in. I wait until the bone-in thighs are on sale and bone them myself.

Total Time: 3 minutes per thigh


  • chicken thighs
  • boning knife


  1. Remove the skin.
  2. Trim the fat.
  3. Locate the bone.
  4. Make the first cut.
  5. Expose the bone.
  6. Scrape the meat from the bone.
  7. Separate the bone from the meat.
  8. Use the chicken or freeze for the future.
  9. Save the bones and vegetable scraps for soup.

That's good to know. I have a recipe for Mozzarella and Ham Chicken Thighs that we love. It calls for boneless thighs.

Thanks for the detailed write up, that is very helpful. I usually get my chicken from Costco, all sealed up for the freezer so I don't have to mess with the bones, but sometimes you find a great deal.

I do the same but not so good at deboning. But cut 2 pieces from each side. I end up with a bone with meat attached. Use that to make chicken soup. Smaller bit work fine for smaller portions, which as seniors, we eat now.
