Default Muffin pan chicken - why?

I don't know what effect the pan has on the chicken thighs (other than shaping it into an unnatural sphere).

Does it do something for the texture or taste? I haven't tried it yet myself, but I'm curious what others have learned from using the technique.

Have not tried this yet but I'm sure one of the guys that has will chime in shortly. To me I would have to think it would help out on the appearance scores due to the uniformness of the thighs.

Ooooo! How about putting your chicken into those cast iron muffin pans that are shaped like an ear of corn! THAT should be a big hit!

Maybe before, but now that others on the circuit are stealing Myron's idea, it would be harder to tell which cook did it!

To me, Myron's chicken looks processed and industrial. Round is not a shape that chicken thighs should be.

How it tastes? I don't know. I'd bet, pretty amazing. Anyone know?

One thing for sure, those of us that don't use the muffin pans next year will be in the minority and possibly DQ's for marking.
