Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

There are already quite a few recipes with chicken thighs on my site. I personally like this piece of meat better than the chicken fillet. Some people worry about the fat that is on the meat, but that just gives it more flavor! If you fry them properly, the meat will melt away in your pan and it will give your dish just that little bit more flavor. In this case we first bread the thighs before we fry them. This chicken thigh in spicy butter sauce has a spicy touch because we add red jalapeño peppers to the sauce. Read on quick!

Do you like a little spice in your food? Then the red jalapeño pepper is for you! This pepper is the ripe variety of the green jalapeño, and has a sweeter and sharper taste. The red jalapeño is delicious in combination with chicken thigh, because it gives the meat an extra kick.

I served this dish with some pasta. For example, you can opt for orzo, but gnocchi or even spaghetti, but potatoes would also be fine. Delicious with a salad and then you can enjoy as if you were eating in a restaurant.
