Juicy Chicken Thighs

Dear Jess,

Easter was amazing. Very busy. It was the beginning of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge. So with that, plus all the extra family get-togethers and what-not, it was very crammed.

As you know, Bill is home for the week. He has asked me to tutor him in culinary ways. Now, I don’t usually get opportunities to teach Bill anything… seeing how he is a genius… so when the rare opportunity presents itself, I jump right in. Last night was the night. He picked me up from work, and we proceeded to the grocery store. I showed him where to find everything he would need to make a really enak Greek Salad.

I have had this Chicken Thigh recipe on my ‘want-to-make’ list for about 2 months. It claimed to be easy, and it looked pretty straight forward, so I decided to add it to our menu. This was a wise choice. Bill says he is going to adopt it as his ‘signature dish.’ All the spices are regular pantry items (for me). If they are not for you, I suggest you boogie down to the store and pick some up immediately!

Greek Salad
1 head iceburg lettuce
2 tomatoes, gutted and diced
1/2 small sweet onion, thinly sliced
1/2 small cucumber, diced
1/2 large red pepper, diced
feta cheese
Dressing:
1 part lemon juice
2 parts olive oil
oregano
basil
salt and pepper to taste

Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs
From Cooking Light
(Serves 4)
2 tsps garlic powder
2 tsps chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
Cooking spray
6 tbsps honey
2 tsps cider vinegar
1. Preheat broiler. Combine first 6 spice ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken to bowl; toss to coat. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil chicken 5 minutes on each side.
2. Combine honey and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well. Remove chicken from oven; brush 1/4 cup honey mixture on chicken. Broil 1 minute. Remove chicken from panggangan and turn over. Brush other side with remaining honey mixture. Broil 1 additional minute or until chicken is done.
I hope to have time this weekend to get on the Esther Study. I’m sorry it is taking me so long to get caught up!
I hope all is well.
 
Love,
Sally
