1 Place the thighs in a roasting dish. Cut the butter into flat pieces. Gently pull the skin from one side of the chicken pieces to form a pocket. Place the butter underneath the skin. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and roast for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and grill for a few minutes, until browned. Baste often with the melted butter in the bottom of the pan.
2 Meanwhile, boil the pasta. Drain and rinse under cold water. Leave to cool. Toss with the remaining ingredients, drizzle with oil and serve with the chicken.
