Baked Ranch Chicken Thighs

Baked Ranch Chicken Thighs

by Pam on September 23, 2014

I was honored to get a copy of a great new cookbook written by my friend Chris from Nibble Me This[1]. It’s called The Kamado Smoker & Grill Cookbook and it’s filled with mouth watering recipes, excellent photos, and great tips about smoking and grilling food.

Sadly, I don’t have a smoker and my grill doesn’t get much use, but all the recipes in the cookbook are adaptable and can be cooked in a grill pan or oven. Chris has mastered his smoking and grilling techniques and makes the most amazing recipes for dry rubs and marinades. I have so many recipes bookmarked in this cookbook and I plan on taking it to Idaho with me so my brother in law, who has a smoker, can give some recipes a try (and I can eat them).

I decided on the Grilled Ranch Chicken recipe and adapted it to work with what I had on hand. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, I reduced the marinade in half because I only cooked 5 thighs, and I used homemade seasoned salt (because I didn’t have any). I let the chicken marinate for 6 hours and cooked one side on the stovetop until it was nice and brown then placed it into the oven for 25 minutes. The chicken was AMAZING! This was one of my very favorite marinades ever and I will be putting it in my regular rotation. My son ate all of his chicken before anything else on his plate and said it was the best. The rest of us were impressed with the excellent flavor as well as how juicy and tender it was. This chicken paired beautifully with the Sliced Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Salad with Basil and Shaved Parmesan[2] and brown rice I served it with.

If you have a smoker or grill and you need some handy tips & techniques and some really great recipes then you should get a copy of The Kamado Smoker & Grill Cookbook! If you are like me, and prefer cooking indoors, you should still get a copy of this excellent cookbook because it has amazing recipes that are easily adaptable for indoor cooking. Thanks for the cookbook Chris[3] – you did an excellent job my friend!

Combine the buttermilk, Greek yogurt, salt, seasoned salt, turbinado sugar, minced garlic, minced onion, black pepper, lemon zest, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl. Add the canola oil while whisking until well incorporated. Place the chicken thighs into the marinade and seal with plastic wrap. Place into the refrigerator for 6-8 hours. Remove from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to cooking.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Heat some olive oil in an OVENPROOF pan over medium high heat. Once hot, add the chicken thighs to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. Flip the chicken over and place into the preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from the oven and let the chicken rest for 5 minutes. Place onto a serving plate, drizzle with the sauce from the pan, and sprinkle the top with fresh cilantro. Serve and 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.
