Just the perfect amount of kick to enjoy these tender thighs. Serve them over white rice, brown rice, cauliflower rice, or sauteed spinach, or a medley of sauteed or steamed vegetables OR whatever you have in the frig that you need to use up, right? They're great cold over salad for lunch the next day, too.
