The Instacart guide to chicken leg products
About chicken legs
A chicken leg includes the lower leg, also called the drumstick, and the thigh. They're usually sold still attached with bones and skin, and people sometimes call them chicken leg quarters because one contains about a quarter of the meat of a whole chicken. Skinless, boneless chicken legs are available through Instacart, as well!
Chicken legs contain dark meat, meaning they have more blood vessels and fat content than white meat like chicken breasts. This makes chicken legs tender, juicy, and flavorful. They taste great fried or with a sauce, spice rub, or marinade, and you can serve them with many different side dishes.
You can buy fresh, precooked, or frozen chicken legs via Instacart! You can also choose a whole chicken or several drumsticks. You can find frozen dinners with deboned chicken legs cut into pieces and mixed with rice, vegetables, or pasta.
Raw chicken legs have white or off-white skin, and the meat should look pink and feel cold and firm. Chicken legs should be clean and odor-free, and there should be no excess liquid at the bottom of the container.
You should avoid any meat that looks discolored or has visible blemishes. You can keep raw chicken legs in your refrigerator for a few days, but you should use or freeze them as soon as possible for the best flavor. Look for fresh chicken legs with a sell-by date as far in the future as possible. When defrosting frozen chicken, put it in a bowl or on a plate to catch any extra moisture.
With side items, one chicken leg is enough to serve one or two people. Many people prefer grass-fed, organic chicken with no added antibiotics because it has more nutrients and fewer additives.
