Today’s Menu: Honey-Ginger Chicken with Lime w/ Scalloped Potatoes and Cut Green Beans (Spoiler Alert) One delicious chicken Thigh recipe!

 

 

Honey Ginger Chicken Thighs 012
A little warmer and a bit more humid out today, but not real bad out. Ran a couple of errands for my Mom and then picked up a friend of mine and we went to see an old friend of ours that was in the hospital. He was involved in a bad car crash a couple of days ago, thankfully he’s doing a lot better now. For dinner tonight I tried a new recipe from the website of Food and Wine. I prepared Honey-Ginger Chicken with Lime w/ Scalloped Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.

 

 

 

To prepare this dish I’ll be using; 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey, 1/3 cup minced fresh ginger, 1 jalapeño, finely chopped, 2 teaspoons garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper, 3 1/2 teaspoons grated lime zest, 1 package of 6 Boneless and skinless Chicken Thighs, 2 teaspoons sugar (Splenda), 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons canola oil, 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, and Lime wedges, for serving (optional). *I couldn’t find garam masala at the store so I made my own. The garam masala recipe I used contained a lot of the ingredient listed in the original recipe, so some of the ingredients are not listed above. There are different garam masala recipes that I seen but I went with this one that contained ingredients needed for this recipe. Chicken Thighs are quickly becoming my favorite cut of Chicken. I left the original recipe and web link at the bottom of the post.

 

 

 

Honey Ginger Chicken Thighs 001
To prepare it I preheated the oven to 400°. In a bowl, whisk the vinegar, honey, ginger, jalapeño, garam masala, cayenne, salt, and 3 teaspoons of the lime zest. Prick the chicken with a fork, add it to the bowl and toss. In a small bowl, mix the sugar with the remaining lime zest. In a large ovenproof skillet, I melted 2 tablespoons of the butter in the oil over moderately high heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning, until golden, 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the lime sugar and roast for 25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked. Add the lime juice and the remaining butter to the skillet. Serve the chicken with the pan juices and lime wedges. If you want some incredible tasting Chicken Thighs you have to try this one out! I love using Spices and this one is packed with a varied assortment that all comes together to make one fabulous Chicken Thigh Dish. One of those Keeper Recipes. You have the bite of the Ginger, the heat of a Jalapeno and Cayenne, and then the sweetness of Honey to balance everything out. I could have eaten the entire package of Thighs, but the leftovers will make a fantastic Chicken Slider for lunch tomorrow!

 

 

 

Then for one side dish I prepared a box of Idahoan Scalloped Potato Casserole. I love all the Idahoan Potato Products, all easy to prepare and all delicious! Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert later some Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream topped with some fresh sliced Georgia Peaches!
