Default poaching in oil?

I have quite a few bone-in skin on chicken thighs and got curious as to what
would happen if I poached them in oil. Not sure I'm going to try it, but still
curious

Essentially, you'd be making chicken confit.

If you need to ask you'd for sure **** it up. You can attempt confit
but then you'd need to render extra chicken fat, in vegetable oil or
other fats you may as well toss it now.

No. For confit you would use chicken fat. Oil sounds horrible.

There are enough margarine users for stores to keep it in stock. I've
never been in a grocery store yet that didn't have it as an option.
