Pepper Medley Chicken Thighs

IMG_20160902_135513If you are like most people you go straight for the boneless chicken breasts every time you buy and use chicken. Well, I highly suggest if you haven’t already to consider boneless,  skinless chicken thighs. Yes, they are a little higher in fat but if you compare it to red meat you are still doing well in that dept. And the cost savings is amazing! The flavor is better than the white breast meat and so tender. You will be pleasantly surprised and I promise you will want to add them to your shopping list regularly 🙂 Enjoy!:)

Mix thoroughly and marinate covered in refrigerator at least 20 min. and up to 12 hours before:

  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp All Purpose Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Coriander
  • 3/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Have prepped on the side (and these can be done ahead of time for a time saver)

  • 1 lg. yellow onion sliced
  • 3 (any color) Bell Peppers sliced

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees

Top with peppers and onions and also with:

  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1 tsp Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Parsley (fresh or dried is fine)

Cover with foil and bake approx 45 min (Ovens vary)

Remove foil and gently stir and bake uncovered an additional 10 min or until thighs reach an internal temp of at least 170 degrees

Cover again with foil and let rest out of oven for 5 min.

I like to drizzle them with a little more Olive Oil before serving.

Serve with your favorite sides 🙂
