“This is wonderful served with rice, garnished with a cilantro sprig and some chopped scallions! From the food section of the Houston Chronicle. Drumsticks and thighs hold up to long, slow cooking without drying out. If you prefer, you can substitute all thighs or all drumsticks for the combination. This is also good with pasta such as linguine or fettuccine instead of the rice. Either way, there will be plenty of yummy sauce to go around!”
