Hen leg quarter

What is a hen leg quarter?

A hen leg quarter refers to the thigh portion of a hen. The leg quarter of a hen is the part located directly under the body of the bird. This piece of meat is usually juicier and has more flavor than the breast of a hen because it contains more fat.


What is a hen leg quarter used for?

A whole hen leg quarter is a versatile piece of meat that can be used in a variety of recipes. It is often used in preparations that benefit from slow, lengthy cooking and a deeper, richer chicken flavor. The most common application is in making deeply flavored, rich chicken broths. Here, the leg quarter bones add a lot of flavor and texture to the broth and the meat is cooked to perfection, making it tender and juicy.

In addition, hen leg quarter is excellent for stews. The meat is slowly cooked in a flavorful sauce, resulting in a wonderfully tender and juicy texture, while giving the sauce an intense chicken flavor.

This piece of meat is also commonly used in traditional braised chicken dishes from around the world. During slow simmering, the meat absorbs all the flavors of the herbs and spices in the dish. Although less common, it is also possible to roast hen leg quarters. This requires slow cooking at a low temperature to keep the meat tender and juicy.

Using a hen leg quarter can significantly improve the flavor depth of prepared dishes. It is a great choice for those striving for a truly hearty and savory chicken dish.
