Today’s Menu: Chicken Thighs with Sausage w/ Cut Green Beans and New Potatoes

 

Chicken Thigh and Sausage 004
Our nice weather has left us. It was 36 degrees at 7:00 this morning and by noon it was down to 32 degrees with a wind chill of around 22 degrees. But we still can’t complain, it’s been a somewhat mild Winter in this area. Had a light Breakfast and a quick workout and started getting the prep work done on tonight’s Dinner, and then into the Crock Pot. Love these one Pot Meals! Did some housework and then went to the bank and got some gas, filled it up since the weekend price increase went back down being Monday. For dinner tonight another new recipe, Chicken Thighs with Sausage w/ Cut Green Beans and New Potatoes.

 
I had come across this recipe in an issue of Taste of Home, love that magazine. It uses Chicken Thighs and Smoked Turkey Sausage, so it’s already a winning recipe! To prep I’ll need the following; 1 Bag Baby Carrots, 2 Celery Ribs (chopped), 1 large Onion (finely chopped), 8 Miller’s Amish Skinless Chicken thighs (about 3 pounds), 1 package (14 ounces) Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage (cut into 1/2-inch slices), 1/4 cup Hunt’s Ketchup, 6 garlic Cloves (minced), 1 tablespoon Frank’s Hot Sauce, 1 teaspoon Dried Basil, 1 teaspoon Paprika, 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme, 1/2 teaspoon Dried Oregano, 1/2 teaspoon Pepper, 1/4 teaspoon Ground Allspice, and 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce. To prepare, it couldn’t be easier! . In a 4 – or 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the carrots, celery and onion. Top with chicken and sausage. Then in a small bowl, combine the ketchup, garlic, hot sauce, seasonings and, if desired, browning sauce. Spoon over meats. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is tender. I’ve left the original recipe and it’s web link at the end of the post.

 

Chicken Thigh and Sausage 002
After 8 hours of simmering on low I removed the lid to check and see if everything was done, and what an aroma when I removed that lid! The Carrots were tender and the Chicken Thighs and Smoked Sausage were moist and done just right. The flavor was incredible, we did have to add some Salt but that was it. Very good dish, and a Keeper Recipe. I also heated up a can Del Monte Cut Green Beans and New Potatoes. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
