As I told you just two days ago, boneless chicken thighs are my absolute favorite cut of chicken to eat. Yeah, yeah, I know, it's dark meat so it's not as healthy as the breast, but guess what? It tastes WAY better and isn't that really what we care about? Well, for me, that's the best part. I'm serving it with quinoa and that's healthy, so they cross each other out as far as I am concerned.
As I was browsing around for some inspiration the other day, I came across a few Lemon Herb Braised Chicken Thigh recipes but none of which used the ingredients I had on hand. I decided, I don't need to follow a recipe, I mean, I am a food blogger, duh. I did what I do best, which is, I threw it all together and hoped for the best. And since you're reading about it, it's a safe bet, to guess that it worked out, brilliantly.
For optimal eating (is that a real thing), you should plate it exactly how I have it plated. A big scoop of quinoa on the bottom, top with a piece or two of chicken. Add a lemon slice and spoon some veggies over the chicken and then drizzle some sauce over the entire thing. Perfect! Here's what went down at my house the other night: My plate is all plated up perfectly. Everything else is out, assembly line style, for them to plate. Blank stares are coming my way, followed by a "What do we do". Instead of doing what I wanted to do, which was to just sit down eat and watch them frantically figure out how to put food on a plate, I somehow turned into a line chef, plating everyone individually. Sometimes, I have to wonder, do they act clueless just so I will do it all for them? What do you guys think?
