Oh pressure cooker let me give thanks to you for not letting us starve during this kitchen remodel. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without you. You’ve kept me sane, fed and most importantly gave me some really cool topics of conversation. I mean how many people prep food in their bedroom? Yes I actually have a pressure cooker and hot plate in my bedroom right now. I have a card table set up to do all of my prep work and a huge plastic tub I put all of the dirty stuff in that I then lug out to the pool house when the dishes need washed.
I had every intention of calling this dish “Bedroom Thighs” but I decided against it as lord only know what kind of search my recipe would end up in. Again I love kitchen and food porn buuuuuuuuuuuut yeah, ‘bedroom porn’ is not something this blog is about.
And before you see this recipe and go “Aw man, there she goes again with another pressure cooker recipe. What am I supposed to do if I don’t own one?” Fear not loved family – read the notes section of this recipe as I also tell you how you can bake these! So now you have no excuse not to make this!
Chicken thighs are one of those indulgences for me as I don’t buy them often. They taste amazing but then they should, dark meat always has a better richer taste but that also means they are higher in fat and calories. So for me, these are deemed a ‘cheat’ meal. It’s funny though as they are ridiculously cheap here. What are they in your area? Like my butcher typically sells the boneless, skinless ones for 49 cents a pound! I know, right?! That’s insane! So I’ll buy up a big batch of them, portion them out and freeze them.
Thighs add a great depth of flavor to soup, stews and chicken salad!
