Bone-in chicken is great to stock your freezer with to use for dinner throughout the months. Bone-in chicken is less expensive than boneless and when you cook chicken with the bone in, it yields juicier, more flavorful meat. I usually buy large family packs of all different kinds of bone-in chicken and then take it home and split it into smaller packages before I put it in the freezer so that I can always have it on hand.

Bone-in chicken recipes usually take a little more time to prepare than boneless meat, but it is the best choice for so many chicken recipes!

If you've been on the hunt for ways to use your bone-in chicken, this roundup is for you! I've pulled together 50 delish chicken recipe ideas to give you a reason to pull that bone-in chicken out of your fridge or freezer tonight!
