Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

EZ Chick Meal

This is so EZ, so quick,... 

no exact recipe is needed...

  • First, I lightly sprayed my old speckled enamel navy blue roasting pan* with non-stick spray.   Set aside.
  • Secondly, in a large frying pan with oil, I browned both sides of the "bare/rinsed off" chicken thighs (thighs with skin on, bone in).  This step did NOT take very long!
  • Thirdly, this is what I put into the sprayed roaster pan:
  • 1 large onion, sliced into long strips (end-to-end, or pole-to-pole)
  • Peeled and "quartered" potatoes-- enough to serve however many people you wish to serve.
  • Large carrots, scraped and sliced.
  • 4 cups chicken broth.
  • On top of the veggies, I arranged the browned chicken thighs and sprinkled all with salt and pepper.
  • Cover with roaster cover (or cover tightly with foil?), put into 300-degree oven and set the oven for 3 hours.  M-m-m-m, so easy, so good.  (I'm sure this would be just as good with using a slow cooker, but it would just take a bit longer.)
IF you want to, you could drain whatever chicken broth is left in the roaster, thicken it, and use it for gravy.  

That's all, folks!

* The large blue speckled/enameled roaster I used was one of my wedding presents 52 years ago--  I love it with "old friends" like that just keep hangin' around my kitchen.

Here it is, again, in less light...
