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.

Hawaiian Chicken Thighs

Hawaiian Chicken Thighs

by Pam on July 24, 2013

I found this Cooking Light recipe on MyRecipes[1] that looked delicious and I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand. I let the chicken thighs marinate all day long then cooked them in my grill pan. The chicken turned out moist, flavorful, and delicious – my whole family loved it. I served the chicken with some tasty green beans (recipe to post tomorrow) and Garlic Rice[2] with cilantro. It was a delicious and healthy meal and we all cleaned our plates.

Combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, ketchup, ginger, garlic, and crushed red pepper flakes together in a zip lock bag. Mix well. Add the boneless skinless chicken thighs to the marinade; seal and place into the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

Remove the chicken from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to cooking. Place the chicken on a plate then season both sides with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Heat a grill pan coated in cooking spray over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add the chicken thighs and cook for 4-5 minutes; flip then cook for an additional 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle the green onions over the cooked chicken and serve. Enjoy.
