Crispy Garlic Chicken

8:39 PM

Back to the real world.  It’s tough to think of “regular” meals after a week of two holiday meals and birthday dinners.  I found this family-friendly meal in Woman’s Day when I was planning our menu for the week.  It’s well-rounded and extremely satisfying.  Top it off with one of the leftover Double Chocolate Mint Super Cookies and you’re stuffed!
What You Will Need:

2 lbs chicken thighs with skin and bone
8 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 lemon
2 T butter
1 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper
Large skillet and lid
1)      Melt butter over medium heat.
2)      Remove skin from chicken while butter melts.
3)      Season chicken with salt and pepper.
4)      Brown chicken on one side for about 5 minutes.  Add garlic to pan.  Flip chicken, lower heat to medium-low and cover for 20-25 minutes.  (Turning chicken twice during this time.) Sprinkle with cumin.
5)      Uncover.  Turning again, sprinkle with more cumin and turn heat back up to medium-high and cook for 3-5 minutes. 

6)      Serve with lemon wedge.
7)      Accompany with Rice Pilaf and spinach salad.
