So for dinner this evening I had an 8 pack of skin on bone in chicken thighs. Took the big bone out of the thighs and heated a cast iron pan to medium and in went a little vegetable oil and some unsalted butter. Seasoned the chicken with just salt and pepper and put them in a cast iron pan, skin side down for four minutes. Then flipped over for four minutes.
Into the toaster oven on warm. Then I chopped up some onion, mushrooms and garlic. Onions went into the pan the chicken fried in on medium heat for 5 minutes, then the garlic went in until fragrant then mixed into the onions then the mushrooms. Enough fat in the pan to add a tablespoon of AP flour, and then a little white wine and water. Reduced the liquid to half volume.
Steamed some broccoli and seasoned it with salt and pepper.
Plated it up – chicken thighs with the onion/garlic/mushroom gravy and then the broccoli.
Gotta say it, keeping it simple is the best way to cook.
