Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn

 

 

To start morning off I made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 38 degrees out this morning and partly sunny. Had a high of 55 degrees and clouds in the afternoon. After Breakfast I went to Meijer, Mom needed a few things. Stopped by the ATM, got gas, and stopped by McDonald’s to pick up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch I had to get the cart out of the shed along withe rake. The official Leaves Drop has began! Filled up a large Hefty Bag Yard Bag up. Just one of many upcoming leaf raking days ahead! For Dinner tonight its Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Mini Ears of Sweet Corn.

 

 

 

 


I purchased a package of Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger the other day and having them tonight for Dinner. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

 

 

 


To start I grabbed a large skillet, sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 8 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes.

 

 

 

 


I got a plate and put paper towel on it and removed the Chicken Thighs from the skillet to the lined plate. Paper towel absorbs any of the excess oil. Just love the crust on the Chicken provided by the Flour Coating! The Flour and cooking it in a Cast Iron Skillet. The Chicken Thighs were moist and flat out delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

For one side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I use a lot of Del Monte Vegetable Products, always delicious and store a lot longer than fresh Vegetables. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through.

 

 

 

 

 

 


For another side dish I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. It’s frozen Mini Ears of Sweet Corn and you just boil for 10 minutes and you have some of the Sweetest Corn you can find! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Mango Snapple to drink.
