Crispy Rosemary Chicken

Trying to clean out my freezer, I came across some packages of boneless, skinless chicken thighs.  I was looking for something very quick, simple but flavorful and this looked like it fit the bill.

I love the flavor of rosemary, the taste is subtle giving the chicken just the right amount of pizazz!  The thighs stayed very moist with the outside lightly crispy.  I didn't have the small red taters so I just used my old standby of sliced thin gold Yukons.  You can find the recipe HERE at allrecipes.

You  have to love recipes that call for spices that you readily have in your cupboard.  I cut back on the oregano just a little since I was using Mexican Oregano, it has a more robust flavor.  The garlic powder, from Penzeys, was one of the spices gifted to me from a dear S&S buddy, Jayne from A Grain of Salt.  Though the recipe called for fresh rosemary... you got it, used what I had!  As long as your dried spices are fresh and haven't been sitting on your shelf for a few years, you'll be fine using the dried rosemary.

The spices lightly sprinkled on the potatoes also gave them such a nice flavor that I may use it on a regular basis!  Rounding off the meal was a nice cool Spring Pasta Salad (grocery deli), a nice change-up from a lettuce salad.

Made for a nice simple and EASY Sunday night supper.  Best of all, very few dishes to clean up afterwards which is always a plus especially on a Sunday night!

Thanks for stopping by.....

Chicken thighs are my favorite part because they absorb flavors and stay so moist. What a delicious Sunday dinner.

That's a perfect Sunday meal! If I'm roasting chicken the thighs are by far my favorite part. I'm off to check out that recipe!

Barb, sounds like a perfect Sunday meal ... tasty, minimal clean-up, and using what you had on-hand.

Thighs are my favorite part of the chicken. I only eat the dark meat and prefer the meatiness of the thighs.

I like rosemary and oregano on my chicken but a little goes a long way IMO.

Wow, glad all yo gals like the thighs, more white meat for me!
Looks like you had a good dinner, Barb!
So SWEET of Jayne to send those SAVORY spices..:) I have never been to Penzey's.

Barb, great dinner! I like easy Sunday dinners, and leftovers are mandatory for my lunch during the week. I went to Penzey's when I was in Grand Central Station, and I love that store. Very darling of Jayne to send you the spices :-)
