Easy Recipes Roasted Chicken Thighs

This was good! I usually don’t like the dark meat but my husband prefers it so I looked up a good recipe for chicken thigh and found this one. I had to cook it longer because it was still partially frozen and I didn’t glaze it because it’d be too sweet for my husband (diabetic). I have to admit that it was tasty, especially with the honey-mustard sauce simply spooned over the chicken instead of glazing it. Will make this again!

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey

DIRECTIONS

  1. 1. In a bowl, toss chicken with oil and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper and marinate 1 hour (or up to a day).
  2. 2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roast chicken, skin-side down, in an oiled roasting pan, 20 to 25 minutes; flip and roast 10 more minutes.
  3. 3. Stir together mustard and honey and season with salt and pepper. Brush glaze onto chicken and broil 5 minutes.

I made this last night and received fantastic comments. The broil at the end gives the chicken a wonderful charred flavor and the marinade plus the rub at the end impart different levels of flavor. We especially liked how moist and juicy it was while also being crisp on the outside. I’ll consider this next time I need a fairly simple recipe for a dinner party. Served alongside rice and a fresh salad.

EASY RECIPES LEMON GARLIC CHICKEN

Absolutely loved this recipe…pleased adults and our sometimes picky teenager! We all agreed this will be a new favorite to work into our rotation! It was easy to make, ingredients were simple and it’s full of flavor! Yummy!!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or whatever cut of chicken you have on hand)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 35 sprigs fresh thyme (3 large sprigs or 5 small sprigs)
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1.5 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large, oven-safe pan (I like to use a wide, deep skillet) over medium heat.
  3. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Place chicken thighs in the hot pan and sear for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  5. Remove chicken to a plate and set aside, then return pan to stove over medium-high heat.
  6. Add onion and garlic to pan and saute until onion is translucent and has started to caramelize, about 4 minutes. If pan is looking a little dry, add another drizzle of olive oil to help the onion cook.
  7. Pull leaves off of thyme sprigs and add leaves to the onions, then season with salt and pepper.
  8. Juice the lemon, removing any seeds, and add to the onion mixture. Stir to combine.
  9. Add chicken stock and spinach to onions and stir to combine. Bring mixture to a simmer, then return seared chicken thighs to pan and spoon some of the broth over the top of them to help them stay moist.
  10. Place pan in 400 degree oven, uncovered, and cook 15-20 minutes more until chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately.

NOTES

I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs because that’s what they had at my store, but I generally prefer to use bone-in, skin-on thighs because I feel like they have more flavor. You could also use chicken breasts, drumsticks, or whatever cut of meat you have on hand! Just keep an eye on it as it cooks, because you may have to adjust the cooking time depending on the cut of the meat.

I used chicken stock as the liquid in this recipe, but it would also be great with white wine! Just substitute 1/2 cup white wine for 1/2 cup of the chicken stock.

Optional: serve chicken over rice.

Easy Recipes Beef Burrito Skillet

This casserole is easy and delicious! I think that next time I make it I will leave out the salsa and taco seasoning and use a can of enchilada sauce. We used corn tortillas as we have people with celiac in our home. Two thumbs up from the whole family!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef (at least 80% lean)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup Old El Paso™ Thick ‘n Chunky salsa
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ original taco seasoning mix
  • 4 (6-inch) Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for soft tacos and fajitas, cut in 1-inch strips
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (4 oz)
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Steps

  1. In 12-inch skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink; drain. Add water, salsa, beans and taco seasoning mix. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce thickens. Reduce heat to low.
  2. Stir in tortilla strips; cook 1 minute. Top with cheese; cover, and remove skillet from heat. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  3. Top with green onions. Serve with sour cream.

I made this and share it with a couple of cousins. We all liked it. The flavors go together well, it’s not too spicy–but could be made to be. It’s quick and easy to prepare, and is on the table in less than 30 minutes. A plus! This recipe will be made again, for sure.

I made this tonight and it was delicious. I doubled the recipe and ended up using 3/4 of it for the chicken.

EASY RECIPES GARLIC SHRIMP RECIPE

This was perfect. I made it with a side of brown rice (cooked in chicken broth). I halved the recipe.

Fabulous and healthy

  •  1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •  1 pound large shrimp, shelled (except for tails) and deveined

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, juice, garlic, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Set aside and marinate for 20 minutes.*
  2. Preheat oven broiler on high.**
  3. Spread shrimp along with marinade in single layer in an oven-proof skillet or baking pan.
  4. Place in center of oven and broil for 3 minutes, until pink.
