Chicken Oysters are two circular-shaped, small pieces of dark meat on the back of the chicken’s thigh, near the backbone.
When birds are cooking, the juices are pulled to the center of the chicken. This means the oyster roasts in the natural juices and is protected from scorching temperatures because it hides inside the body. Thus, the infamous “oyster” is described as the best part of the chicken.
