Chicken is delicious when cooked long and gently enough so that all its own virtues and the deep flavours of the accompanying seasonings can develop fully. That is to say, when it is braised.

In braising chicken, I prefer to use thighs. They are sturdy enough to be cooked for a long time and yet retain their taste and texture, while absorbing the sauce. Speaking of which, the Thai tastes will be apparent.

This is a dish that can be prepared ahead of time and then reheated.</
