Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

I tried something new for Breakfast this morning, a Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles Turkey Sausage. It’s an Egg White, Turkey Sausage, and Cheddar Cheese Scramble. Just microwave it in the container it came in for about 1 minute and 40 seconds and done! Heated up perfect and I enjoyed it. Plenty of Egg White and Turkey Sausage, I did add an extra sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and a shake of Salt and Pepper. Plus it’s only 150 calories and 3 carbs per serving! I’ll be buying more of these! Had some snow flurries overnight, nothing major. For the day it was 38 degrees and mostly cloudy. Did a load of laundry and cleaned the kitchen today. Cleaned out the fridge and freezer, cleaned the stove, and straightened up the pantry. For Dinner tonight its Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

 

 

 

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 prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better.

 

 

 

 

 

 


For a 2nd side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans in Mild Chili Sauce. These are fairly new and as all the Bush’s Bean Products Delicious! For me you just can’t beat Bush’s Beans. I’ve prepared these a few times now and really love them, nice combo using the Kidney and Pinto Beans. To prepare them just empty the Beans into a small sauce pan. Cover and heat to a simmer. Done! I had also baked a loaf of RiverRoad Bake House Multi Grain Oval Loaf Bread. This has become the family’s favorite Baked Bread. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

  1. Good job on frying the chicken thighs! They look awesome. 🙂

    • Chicken Thighs has become our favorite! But like all food items that are being used more and more so goes the price. But we still love them.
