Juicy chicken thighs with blue cheese sauce

The Saucy Dressings team was feeling in need of comfort as the following day we had to take The Lady Margaret, the harp, back to the music shop.

This dish was (together with the odd dram – it goes well with whisky) the answer.

Serve it with crushed lemony potatoes, which also soak up the blue cheese sauce; and with either a crisp green salad, or with buttered Romanesco or broccoli.

You can cook the chicken in its buttery, spicy sauce and freeze it. It also heats up well. The blue cheese sauce keeps fine in the fridge for a day or so.

This is a good way of using up any scraps of elderly blue cheese which might be lurking in your fridge.
