What is a delicious, healthy way to prepare chicken thighs?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiologist (Heart Specialist)

High-protein, flavor-packed skinless chicken thighs are a terrific bargain. Make them ahead of time on a Sunday to enjoy throughout the week. Poach in water to keep them juicy, then shred or chop up meat and use in your family's favorite dishes. This is a great way to satisfy a household where everyone eats differently; the meat can be used in versatile ways to satisfy everyone -- in tacos, wraps, salads and more.
