Tonight, I wanted to try something different, filling and creamy for dinner. This would be the perfect meal to cook for a group of friends or for your significant other. Its easy, tasty x doesnt require much prepping!
I went ahead and prepped my red potatoes. Boiled my water, washed my tators and threw them in the water
Afterwards, I seasoned my chicken thighs (remember they are WAYYY more flavorful than breasts!) And allowed to sit for a few minutes. [BRINE, if you have time….more about this later]
Often times, people make the mistake of not allowing your pan x oil to get hot enough before throwing in your meat. Big Mistake. Allow enough time so that it will cook thoroughly.
Cook chicken thighs for 3 minutes on each side [You dont want it fully cooked — itll finish in the over]
Place in pan as they finish … Ughhh, Im sooo excited. My mouth is watering!
Keep the excess oil from the chicken, add cherry tomatoes, red pepper, garlic x sundried tomatoes. Allow to cook down before adding broth.
Lower heat. While that is simmering. Check on potatoes. Remove from heat, drain x place in bowl.
Add cream x broth… bring to a simmer before added FRESH parmesan cheese (grated Kraft cheese will not break down properly… it has to be fresh!)
After the sauce boils, add in parmesan cheese slowly x stir. After it starts to melt pour mixture over chicken. Top with parmesan cheese, dried parsley, basil x oregano. Cover with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly.
While I wait for that to bake. Im going to work on my tators. Season them down with parsley, dried basil, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder x a shake of chili powder. Add a bit of Ranch x heavy whipping cream (2-3 tablespoons of both or your desired consistency). Mash with a fork or tator masher. 🙂
They are LICK the bowl ….YUMMY!!!!!
P.S. I know im supposed to “plate” my food..but im always too lazy to use real plates unless I have company lol. Same ole girl… im just bloggin’ now. Ill get fancy soon.
