    NO!!! Chicken thighs are *NOT* 1 point per ounce!
    Chicken thighs are DARK meat which is 1.5 Points per ounce (see page 78 of the FlexPoints Getting Started booklet). They list Dark Meat as 3 Points per 2oz. They also list a 3oz (skinless)thigh as being 3 Points WITH THE BONE. Here's a link to more info on thighs being dark meat. GoldKist Farms

    Thanks for that, Dawn! We have to watch whether it says boneless or not! I'm sure it's helpful to have the boneless weight AND the bone-in weight, but that can be very confusing if you're not careful. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    FYI 4 ounces of skinless, boneless chicken thigh meat is 103.2 calories/5.4 fat and of course no fiber. To me that is 3 points for 4 ounces.

    I usually use the Calculator to figure everything, but things like meat are so hard.
    I just checked the USDA database and according to that 29grams (1oz) of roasted boneless, skinless dark meat is 59 calories and 2.82 grams of fat and 29 grams of roasted thigh meat...boneless skinless is 61 calories and 3.16 grams of fat. Both of those add up to 1.5 Points.
    Dark meat has more fat in it than white meat, so I cut that out of my diet totally! I have to be as frugal with points as I can! LOL!

    I used the nutritional information on the bag of boneless, skinless thighs I had in my freezer last night and it was for 4 ounces!
