How Long to Boil Chicken Thighs
Determining how long to boil chicken thighs depends on whether your chicken is thawed and whether it has bones. Here's how long it takes to boil chicken thighs:
- Fresh Bone-In Chicken Thighs: 25-35 minutes
- Fresh Boneless Chicken Thighs: 15-20 minutes
- Frozen Bone-In Chicken Thighs: 45-50 minutes
- Frozen Boneless Chicken Thighs: 30-35 minutes
Before eating your chicken thighs, you should always use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. While 165 degrees Fahrenheit is when poultry is generally considered safe to eat, chicken thighs can actually benefit from cooking them a bit longer, so don't be afraid to cook them to between 175 and 190 degrees.
