The most flavorful and juiciest part of the bird, our USDA Certified Organic Chicken Thighs come from chickens sustainably and humanely raised without hormones, antibiotics or steroids. Defrost, then let the slow cooker, grill, or oven do the leg work (pun intended!) Sure to satisfy fans of dark—and white meat, Rastelli's chicken thighs go a long way toward showing why dark meat is enjoying a return to the spotlight.

Chicken Thighs are a dark meat cut from the upper section of the leg, between the breast and the drumstick. Owing to the presence of connective tissue, they are tougher than white meat when raw, but because of the higher fat content, they become particularly tender as the fat breaks down when cooking. They are generally considered the most flavorful cut of chicken.
Our organic chickens come from a small organic farming collective in the Shenandoah Valley where they’re fed an all-vegetarian, GMO-free blend of corn and soybean meal. In addition to their feed, they’re free to roam during the day where they can forage for bugs, grubs, worms, and tasty greens in their pasture. They have constant access to outdoor grassy pastures with ample shade. And, of course, they never receive antibiotics, steroids or hormones.
