These combinations are fabulous.  You can make it as spicy as you like but this recipe will be a medium hot.

Buy thighs (not legs)  more succulent,  from the butcher/supermarket, skin on. Then de-bone and remove the skin.

I make my own peanut butter. So simple and a lot cheaper (see previous recipes)
