A CookTale

I’m a home cook, taught by the process of trial and error, mostly error. My first commandment is “keep the recipe short and simple, and use the best of ingredients available”. High on that list are dry spices. I purchase mine, always dependable, from Their monthly catalog is jammed with good stuff. This recipe is hard to beat, your only caution is not to overcook the thighs. To assure that, I use an electric fry pan, and the thighs are out of the pan when their internal temperature is around 140〫F. By the time they reach the plate their heat is raised by at lest 5〫F. They are still moist, Juicy & loaded with curry flavor.


2 8 Ounce Skin On Chicken Thighs
1 TB of mild Curry Powder (or to your liking)
2 TB of Butter
Kosher Salt & Black Pepper
1/4 Cup of diced Parsley
1 TB of Olive Oil for the fry pan


1. Mix together the Curry Powder & Butter into a smooth emulsion.
2. Carefully lift the Thigh’s skin & with a spatula & coat the meat.
3, Rub any remaining Curry Butter on the skin.
4. Salt & Pepper the Thighs. Set aside until 25 minutes before serving.
5. Heat the pan, (preferably electric) to 325〫F
6. Add 1TB of Olive Oil & when rippling, add the Thighs, skin side down.
7. Pan fry for about twelve minutes & turn the underside down for about another twelve minutes. Check the internal temperature, 140〫F is ideal.
8. Remove each Thigh to a plate & spoon the delicious Curry Butter sauce around them. Sprinkle on the Parsley, & serve
