ingredients (serves 2 - hungry people)
for the red pepper sauce
1 red pepper (cored & diced)

(Crack on w/ the chicken in the mean time . . )
Once the pepper is soft, blend it with a stick blender until smooth then add the goats cheese, and pulse until fully incorporated.
Leave the sauce on minimum heat to keep warm until needed. (If you’re feeling naughty & luxurious, add a little butter too!)

zest 1/2 lemon
1tbsp veg oil
Pat the thighs dry and remove any excess fat.
Put them in a tupperware box, and add the oil, mix to coat the thighs
Season them and them place them in a hot frying pan - they should sizzle.
Turn the heat down and leave them to brown. (get on w/ veg - steam the Cavolo nero)
Once browned turn them over and top w/ the lemon zest. (get on w/ the potatoes)
Once the other side is done keep warm on a saucer. (or in the finished sauce)
Use the pan to finish the cavolo nero.
(Tip if you’re cooking with the skin on cook almost entirely skin side down - for ultra crispiness - then finish off the other side for a minute or two.)
