What Makes Chicken Irresistible? You! (Two Recipes You HAVE to Make Now!)Chicken / September 18, 2017
So many people ask me, “What cuts of chicken do you like best?” That’s like asking a mother which of her children she is most fond of. The answer would of course be, “I love them all for different reasons!”
There are those who say you must eat chicken breast only. Others who love noshing on a good fried chicken leg. Wings are certainly king during football season. But what about thighs? To me they’re the unsung hero of chicken recipes because they bake so evenly, work with and without skin, and are just so danged cute. That’s why this first recipe is all about the thigh.
Juicy plums lend the perfect texture and acidity to a sauce that is good enough to drink! And so easy. The natural sugars in the maple syrup reduce down to the perfect color and consistency to cover the meat like a sticky caramel wrap on a state fair apple. Wow.
T round out the dish, add your favorite vegetables. I decided to boil some potatoes and carrots, mix them with butter and salt and pepper, and fold in some fresh rosemary. DELISH.
