Chicken thighs are on the menu weekly in my house. It’s hard to beat their versatility and affordability. This is how I plan to eat them until fresh cherry season — aka the best season — comes to an end. The thighs are cooked in a cast iron skillet until their skin crackles and then they’re topped with a quick and easy cherry salsa made with red onion, jalapeño, fresh cilantro, and a big squeeze of lime. When piled onto the chicken thighs, it’s an effortless yet elegant summer meal that’s as ready for casual weeknights as it is for simple dinner parties out on the back porch.
