Simple Chicken Thighs with Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes?A one pot meal! and A Butterball Coupon Giveaway!

Simple Chicken Thighs with Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes…A one pot meal! and A Butterball Coupon Giveaway!

by Pam on November 7, 2013

This was honestly one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Maybe because it was comforting on a cold rainy day. Maybe it was because I cooked it all in one pot and barely had any dishes to do. Maybe because simple food really is the best food. Whatever the reason, I will be making this meal again and again. This was a simple, no fuss, no muss, delicious meal! I love that.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Heat the olive oil in a large OVEN PROOF Dutch oven over medium high heat. Remove any excess fat from the thighs then season both sides with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Place the chicken, skin side down, in the hot pan. Cook for 6-7 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown. Carefully, tilt the pan and remove all the oil (this will make the dish healthier and also will prevent the veggies and chicken from being greasy). Once all the oil is gone from the pan, flip the chicken over and move over to one side of the pan. Add the asparagus and grape tomatoes to the other side of the pan then season lightly with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Place into the oven and cook for 25 minutes, or until chicken has cooked through.

Remove the pan from the oven and serve immediately. Enjoy.

Italian Chicken Thighs

Italian Chicken Thighs

by Pam on May 21, 2013

I have often seen recipes for chicken using an Italian vinaigrette as a marinade so I decided to give it a try. I made a tangy vinaigrette using seasoned rice vinegar, red wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, and seasonings. I marinated the chicken thighs for 8 hours then did a quick sear before cooking them off in the oven. They turned out moist, flavorful, and so delicious. I will definitely be making this chicken again! I served these chicken thighs with the Garlic Rice with Sautéed Onions, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Toasted Pine Nuts[1] and broccoli for a tasty and healthy meal.

Combine the olive oil, water, seasoned rice vinegar, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, sugar, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a large zip lock bag, seal and shake the bag to mix well. Place the trimmed chicken thighs in the bag and squish them around to make sure they are evenly coated. Place into the refrigerator for 8 hours (or overnight). Remove the bag from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to cooking the chicken.

Preheat an OVEN PROOF pan over medium high heat and coat it with cooking spray.  Add the chicken thighs to the hot pan and cook for 4 minutes or until golden brown, flip the chicken over and place the pan into the oven. Roast the chicken for 15 minutes then remove from the oven. Let the chicken rest for a few minutes prior to serving. Enjoy.

Delicata Squash with Brown Sugar and Butter and the Butterball Coupon Winners

Delicata Squash with Brown Sugar and Butter and the Butterball Coupon Winners

by Pam on November 10, 2013

Delicata is my new favorite squash – I can’t believe it took me so long to try it! This squash is light, flavorful, and easy to cook. I am looking forward to trying all sorts of recipes with it. I lightly brushed some butter in each half then sprinkled them with a bit of brown sugar before baking them in the oven. They turned out so delicious, moist, and flavorful. My son absolutely loved his and so did my husband and I. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Add a 1/4 inch of water to a large baking pan.

Cut the squash in half lengthwise then clean out the seeds with a spoon. Rub the butter equally into each squash half. Season with a touch of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper then sprinkle each half equally with the brown sugar. Place into the prepared baking dish then cover with tin foil.

 

Place the pan into the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until tender. Remove the tin foil then turn the oven to broil; cook,watching carefully, for a few minutes or until the sugar starts to caramelize. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. Enjoy.
