Chicken Thighs in Chipotle Cream Sauce

Chicken thighs were on sale at my local groceries store this week and you know how I love to save money so, guess what? You’ve got some chicken thighs recipes coming your way! Earlier tonight, we made chicken thighs in a gorgeous chipotle cream sauce. Personally, I’ve never cooked with chipotle peppers before so I was surprised when the spiciness of this sauce snuck up on me! No, chipotle peppers aren’t exactly ghost chilis but they actually have a nice kick. With that said, this dish is for all the spicy food lovers out there.

    1. The chilis come canned in the sauce and you can find them in the canned food section of any groceries store. They’re actually very cheap at just $1 a can!
