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

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.
