“This is a nice elegant meal to serve. The flavor improves in the refrigerator. I use thigh meat because it has a rich flavor, and it stands up to the braising process. I also remove the skin, just because it looks better in the finished product. You may use about 1 Tbsp. of butter with the olive oil if you prefer that flavor.”
