Todays Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans
For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy and 60 degrees outside today. After Breakfast I went to Meijer for a few items and stopped at McDonalds and picked up Breakfast for Mom. After Lunch I went to see a neighbor of ours thats in the hospital. He had to Vein Surgery on his left leg. He seems to be doing good, hell be home Wednesday. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.
I had a bought package of the Simple Truth Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs from Kroger and had them in the freezer. Laid the package in the fridge overnight to thaw. To prepare them Ill just need Flour, Mortons Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans were meant to be together, one of our favorite meals!
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.
For one side we had Fried Potatoes, which I picked up at Kroger yesterday also. I love these and Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which well 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 had also opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans and had them on already cooking. I love these, always taste so fresh! Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. One delicious Dinner as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For Dessert tonight I had a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyders of Hanover Mini Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
