This morning I want to share recipe that I tried on Friday night. I had chicken that I either needed to use or freeze, and some veggies that I needed to use as well. I decided to throw it altogether and see what happens. What happened was a delicious meal, one that hubby went back for seconds for!
The ingredients were so simple, and cheap.
1 pack of boneless skinless chicken thighs
6 red potatoes
1/4 white onion
1 can fat-free chicken broth
Seasonings (I use celery salt, pepper, garlic powder)
Quarter the potatoes, leave skins on. If they are bigger, you may need to cut them smaller. Slice the onion into strips. Place all in large baking dish. Add chicken broth and add seasonings.
Bake in oven for 50 minutes on 350 degrees. Your house will smell wonderful while it is cooking. I checked the potatoes with a fork to know when it was done.
We normally eat a lot of chicken breast, and you could easily use that instead of chicken thighs. But, I think chicken thighs are much more tender. This was really good. I love throwing ingredients together and finding another easy, inexpensive meal to make. You could easily put this altogether in the morning and throw in the oven when you get home. Or… You could cook it in a crockpot. Now I just need to come up with a name for it…
I also found a new treat this week at the store. I had recently seen a picture on Instagram from a fellow blogger (BocaFrau) and made a mental note that I need to find it. It was a picture of Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Spice Bread. When I was at Publix the other day, I had pumpkin on the brain and remembered the bread. I was so excited to see that they had it (along with other yummy flavors but I wanted pumpkin). Rather than wait till breakfast the next morning to have it, of course I had to try it when I got home.
It has a wonderful cinnamon aroma and just the right amount of pumpkin flavor. It’s a winner!
Do you have any easy recipes that you’ve created from ingredients you already have?
