I cook with chicken a lot and have found my family prefers the boneless, skinless chicken thighs over the breast meat. I know some folks will argue the thigh meat doesn’t have the same lean qualities as the breast meat, however when you’re preparing a meal for both children and adults, sometimes you have to compromise a little.
Besides, once you taste these Involtini di Pollo, also known as chicken wrapped in pancetta, you may end up conceding your argument. The flavor of the darker meat is so juicy and tender, much more so than the white meat could accomplish. The crispy coating of the browned pancetta wrapped around the chicken locks in the flavors of the toasted garlic and fresh sage nestled inside, resulting in a rich and almost buttery taste.
