In 'Don't Panic More Dinner's in the Freezer
Top Review by teresas
I found this very delicious...I skipped the freezing part and went straight to the cooking...I did slip the thighs under the broiler for a few minutes to give them a more of crispy skin and to help brown them...This is very easy to prepare and I'm planning to make them again using the freezing method...thanks for posting.
