  • Add salt, pepper, rosemary and bay leaf and cover with water.

Fried thighs with cream sauce

This garlic rabbit recipe is perfectly creamy and tender thanks to the cream. You will surely like to add more than just one serving. Although the recipe is for thighs, we can also use a whole rabbit.


  • 1,500 g gutted rabbit
  • 2 cups Kentucky Seasoned Flour
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3 spoons of semi-coarse flour
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped chives
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 6 cloves of garlic


  • Cut the rabbit into portions and coat in seasoned flour. We stack it on a grid so that the flour does not stick to the plate, and let it rest.
  • In a pan (ideally cast iron), heat the vegetable oil in a layer of about 3 cm on a medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, coat the rabbit again in flour, lightly tap off the excess, and carefully place it in the hot oil.
  • Fry in the classic style like a steak for about 4 minutes on each side, then turn again, cover, lower the temperature and fry for another 8 minutes.
  • Uncover the pan, turn the pieces of rabbit again and let them fry for another 2 minutes. It is best to store the fried pieces of rabbit in a thermos to keep them warm.
  • This is how we gradually process all the pieces of rabbit. Then pour the oil from the pan so that there are about 3-4 spoons left in it and any pieces that have separated from the rabbit.
  • Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of seasoned flour into the pan and cook, stirring constantly, until it is lightly browned.
  • Add the herbs and garlic and stir for 2 minutes to warm the garlic. Cover with chicken stock and cream.
  • We stir to loosen all the pieces from the pan and continue until the sauce starts to thicken. Then we can serve.
  • Put the pieces of rabbit on a plate and pour the sauce over them.
