Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of Nutri- Grain Eggo Waffles and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Sunny, low humidity, and 78 degrees outside today! Got the cart out and did some yard work. Later on I had a Doctor’s appointment to see if he could give me something for my Sinuses and these Sinus Headaches I’ve been having lately. He wrote a prescription to see if that could break up the congestion. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

 

I had a package of the Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger in the freezer. I sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans has become one our favorite Dinners!

 

 

 

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of 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 and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

 

 

I grabbed 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. So moist and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’ve loved these all my life and my Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

 

 

 

 


As the Potatoes were cooking I also reheat the leftover Green Beans from last night’s Dinner. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Quite a Dinner tonight as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A bit later i went Meijer and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. 87 degrees and sunny, but the humidity was low. Got the cart out and did some yard work and then helped a neighbor of mine get some work done around his yard. He’s 90 years old and sometimes needs help so the neighborhood helps him out when needed, as they do for everyone. I love this neighborhood! For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

As the Potatoes were cooking I had also opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer, and had them cooking. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! Quite a Dinner tonight! For Dessert later a small bowl of Planter’s Deluxe Mixed Nuts and a Coke Zero to drink.

Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Corn Bread

 


Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Had one of those long nights last night dealing with those Phantom Pains! Oh how I wish that they would find a cure for Phantom Pains! But for now nothing I can do except to wait them out. They continued until the early afternoon before stopping. So just tried to rest up today when I could. For Dinner tonight its Catfish Nuggets w/ Fried Potatoes, Cut Green Beans, and Cast Iron Skillet Baked Corn Bread.

 

 

 

 


I had purchased the Catfish Nuggets from Kroger yesterday. To prepare them I rinsed the Catfish Nuggets off in cold water and patted dry with a paper towel. Seasoned them with Sea Salt. Then put them in a Hefty Plastic Storage Bag and added Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri Breading Mix, shook the bag until all the Nuggets were coated. Then pan fried them in a medium size skillet in Extra Light Olive Oil. Fried each side about 3 1/2 minutes, until a golden brown. The Zatarain’s Crispy Southern Fish Fri is perfect for the Catfish, great flavor and the Nuggets were good size and meaty.

 

 

 


For one side we had Fried Potatoes! I’ve loved these all my life and my Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on high.

 

 

 

 


With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

 

 

 

 


Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through.

 

 

 

 

 


I also made a small Cast Iron Skillet of Corn Bread, for Mom, using Martha White White Corn Meal. First Corn Bread I’ve made in a while and it’s just as good as it always was! What a meal Fried Catfish, Fried Potatoes, Green Beans, and Corn Bread. Then for Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 


For Breakfast on this Saturday morning I prepared a packet of Pioneer Peppered White Gravy, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. This is a great way to start any morning off.

 

 

 

 

After doing the dishes I went to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Then I stopped by the car wash and had her car washed. Not bad out today its sunny and the winds finally died down, 50 degrees. After Lunch I headed out to Walmart to their Lawn and Garden Center. I wanted to check out the Spring Plants they had in so far. Not much of a selection yet, I’ll check back later in the week. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

I had a package of the Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger in the freezer. I sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans has become our favorite Dinner!

 

 

 

 

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of 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 and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

I grabbed 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 we had Fried Potatoes! I’ve loved these all my life and my Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on high.

To start this Morning off I Thin Cut Pork Chops, Fried Egg Sunnyside Up, and Toast. I purchased a package of Wafer Thin Cut Sirloin Chops at Walmart. To prepare them I seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and then rolled them in Flour. Fried them on medium heat for a total of 4 minutes, turning them once. These Chops were excellent! We really enjoyed these. I also prepared a Sunnyside Up Egg, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Great way to start off a Winter’s Day! Outside a few early snow flurries before it turned to rain. Rain, Cloudy, and a high of 41 degrees. I went to the ATM and then by the Post Office. Back home did some house cleaning. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

 

 

I had a package of the Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger in the freezer. I sat the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. Then to prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans has become our favorite Dinner!

 

 

 

 

 

I grabbed a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of 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 and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

 

 

 

 

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 we had Fried Potatoes! I’ve loved these all my life and my Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on high.

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the skillet already heated I added the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare and so good!

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the Potatoes were cooking I opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! Quite a Dinner tonight! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
