i) This recipe used boneless, skinless chicken thigh fillets, which are slightly fattier and tastier than chicken breast. You can of course use bone-in thighs with or without skin, chicken breast, turkey, pork fillet or pork chops. Adjust the cooking time accordingly. If using chicken thighs with skin, fry until skin is crispy and inside cooked.
ii) You can freeze this dish, although the cream may "break" or separate a little when reheating, but it won't affect the taste.

Has many plus points - its versatility, as well as the ease and speed with which it can be cooked - make it one of the most popular meats around. It has a high level of good quality protein, as well as B vitamins, iron, copper and selenium.

We don't usually eat thighs. Like breasts better.
But this certainly looks good!

If I have to eat chicken, I don't want it to be dark meat. But this sounds good, especially if you replace the thighs with breasts.
