Cooking Tips: One of our favorite chicken cuts, our organic bone-in thighs cook quickly and are perfect for weeknight meals. Because they’re air-chilled, it’s easy to achieve deliciously crispy skin while retaining juicy, succulent meat. Versatile chicken thighs take all manner of seasoning well and can be cooked using any of your preferred methods.
Simple preparation: Marinate the thighs in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, chopped herbs, salt, and pepper. Let the chicken marinate for 30 minutes to 4 hours. Then, either grill the chicken over medium heat for 6-8 minutes per side or bake it in a casserole dish at 375°F (190°C) for 35-40 minutes. Be sure the chicken comes to at least 165F in the thickest part of the thigh. Once cooked, let the chicken rest before serving. For an accompaniment, consider serving the herb and lemon-marinated chicken thighs with a side of wild mushroom risotto and roasted asparagus. Enjoy!
Our organic chickens are raised in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country by small Amish and Mennonite family farms committed to sustainable agriculture.
The chickens feed only on whole, non-GMO organic corn and soy, and no protein supplements, no poultry or fish by-products, no pesticides or herbicides are ever used. The water they drink is pure spring water, free of chlorine and fluorine. No growth hormones, tranquilizers, arsenicals or antibiotics are ever administered.
Our chickens are also free-range. In order for poultry to be certified free-range, it must be raised in specific conditions: with access to the outdoors and natural light, ability to forage naturally and a minimum of 1.5 square feet of space per bird when indoors. In addition, they must be raised to 8 weeks of age, as opposed to 5 or 6 weeks, which is standard for commercially-raised chicken.
