Sans skin and after a quick trim, they fall into the lean category, with 166 calories, 8 grams of fat and just 2 grams of saturated fat per 3-ounce portion. That is <em>only</em> 26 calories, 5 grams fat and 1 gram saturated fat more than 3 ounces of chicken breast.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/4_chicken_thigh_recipes_that_will_turn_you_onto_the_dark_side_of_chicken#comments Food Blog Budget meals Dinner Hilary Meyer Family meals Quick meals Recipe Makeover Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Thu, 21 Nov 2013 16:14:34 +0000 Stefan_20 279754 at http://www.eatingwell.com Staff favorites recipes from the November 2013 issue of EatingWell Magazine http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/staff_favorites_recipes_from_the_november_2013_issue_of_eatingwell_magazine <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/staff_favorites_recipes_from_the_november_2013_issue_of_eatingwell_magazine" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/DS8590A_Scrivani.jpg" alt="Staff favorites recipes from the November 2013 issue of EatingWell Magazine Blog Post" title="Staff favorites recipes from the November 2013 issue of EatingWell Magazine Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Our double issue for November and December is an easy one to love: it&rsquo;s stuffed with gorgeous photos of fabulous food and it arrives just when you start thinking about cooking for all the season&rsquo;s celebrations.

We cut the sugar nearly in half compared to a boxed version. But it’s still plenty sweet thanks to a touch of honey and the natural sweetness of fresh corn kernels, which also help to boost fiber and keep it delectably moist. See for yourself.
