Expert Tips

  • Expect 8 small or 6 thighs per package. Buy what you need for your family-hearty appetites may prefer 2 thighs while light eaters will be satisfied with one.
  • Swap the water called for in the recipe for Progresso™ chicken broth for even more flavor.
  • We recommend using chicken thighs in this recipe for best results. If you use chicken breasts, you may need to adjust bake time.
