Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Roasted BBQ Glazed Chicken Thighs w/ Multigrain Medley and Mini Ear Corn on the Cob

Well the Snow Storm stayed way North of us. We had rain, and not really a whole lot of that. At least everyone’s pantry and fridges are well stocked, too funny!! Anyway it was a laid back day around here today, not much going on. Did a little cleanup on the computer and that was it, sofa city after that! For dinner tonight I prepared Cast Iron Roasted BBQ Glazed Chicken Thighs w/ Multigrain Medley and Mini Ear Corn on the Cob.

I used my favorite Chicken, Miller Amish Poultry. I’ll be using their Skinless and Boneless Chicken Thighs. I had them in the freezer so I let them thaw in the fridge overnight. To prep them I seasoned them with Garlic Powder, Sea salt, and Ground Black Pepper. Sprinkled a light coat of Flour on them and they were ready to make. Preheated the oven to 400 degrees F. I’ll be using my favorite skillet, the Cast Iron Skillet. Added 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and set the burner on medium. When the skillet was heated up I added the Chicken, just long enough to brown both sides. After flipping them over I added a glaze to them, I used JB’s Fat Boy Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce.

I then put the skillet in the oven to finish cooking the Thighs. Roasted them till I had an internal temperature of 165 degrees, using a meat thermometer. Roasted about 15 minutes and done! As I removed them from the oven I put another light glaze over the top and let them cool for 3 minutes before serving. The Thighs were moist and tender, with all kinds of flavor! These would make some great Chicken Thigh Sliders, which I’ll try sometime soon! I’ve been using Chicken thighs more and more, somewhat cheaper and just as good as any other cut.

For one side I prepared some Minute Multi Grain Medley. I love this Minute Multi Grain, It has Brown Rice, Thai Red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! Plus it’s only 160 calories and 31 net carbs per serving, which isn’t bad for a Grain Dish. Then I also boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. As good and sweeter than some fresh Corn on the Cob. Chicken, Grains, and Corn make a fine Dinner! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.





Minute Multi-Grain MedleyMinute Multi Grain Medley

* Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten-free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 minutes. The four grains include:
* Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
* Thai Red Rice – also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
* Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
* Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
This quick cooking whole grain medley is pre-portioned in 4 separate bags for ease of preparation and has a slightly chewy, nutty flavor. Perfect for any meal, even as a wholesome start to the day, this medley is great when eaten with a little olive oil and salt, cooked in meat/vegetable broths or fruit juices. Make Minute® Multi-Grain Medley a versatile recipe staple for your pantry.

1 -Do NOT use the bag for cooking. COMBINE water and contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water.
2 – BRING to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed.
3 – REMOVE from heat. Fluff with fork.
