EASY BREEZY CHICKEN THIGHS

From a tiny BEACH kitchen:

What could be easier or faster?  With just a few items from your panty, you will have dinner on the table in short order.

Look for a package of chicken thighs devoid of skin and fat.  Cut away the fat as much as you can.   Less sit ups tomorrow.  Seriously.  

You don’t have to slice and dice.  Just  buy vegetables already cut up.  Saves time and is always worth it.  This dish also works well with petite canned tomatoes.  It’s tough to find good tomatoes in winter~  unless you live near my Dad… in Florida.   

Ingredients:

  • Package of chicken thighs
  • 3 fresh tomatoes / or can of petite diced tomatoes
  • teaspoon of capers
  • diced garlic clove, or three
  • Half of chopped medium red onion
  • Small package of sliced baby bella mushrooms
  • Handful of green olives
  • Cup of chicken broth

Let’s get started!

Saute the chicken thighs in EVOO (extra virgin Olive Oil) or Pam Spray if that works for you.  Brown on both sides and add crushed pepper and salt.   This can take up to 5 minutes on each side.  Keep the heat medium to avoid smoking up your kitchen.   

See how  the thighs are good and brown?   Now simply add half a cup of chicken broth, 3 real chopped tomatoes,( or a can of diced tomatoes) a teaspoon of capers, half a diced red onion, a few olives, clove of diced garlic, & the entire package of sliced mushrooms. 

Let everything hang out together uncovered for 8 to 10 minutes on medium heat until vegetables are soft.    Boil up some pasta if have the time.  Or serve with a crusty bread to scoop up the sauce.
