    Roasting Spice Blend - Chicken in Cups Chicken thigh is such a versatile cut of meat. It is easy to cook, does not dry out and takes on so much flavour. That is why thigh is one of our favourite chicken cuts to cook (and eat!) We favour the double cooking method - pan fry on both sides then pop it in the oven to cook through.
