How to Cook Chicken Thigh Without Wasting Any Time
If you want to learn how to cook chicken thighs without wasting any time you need to follow the steps that I’m about to tell you. You can find this recipe in my book, “A Beginner’s Guide to Cooking” (by Marc Biest). It will teach you how to make chicken into a light and healthy dinner that will have your family raving about it. You just need to add some seasonings, breading, and cooking it in the oven.
Start by trimming away any excess fat from both the legs and the thigh skin. Combine garlic powder, oregano, thyme, salt, and poultry seasoning in a medium bowl. Stir to combine. Rub the mixture over both the turkey and the thigh skin to produce a golden brown exterior.
This is one of my favorite chicken recipe because it only calls for half a cup of dry pasta. By using pasta you are reducing the amount of fat, calories, and oils used in this recipe. It also makes the dish taste better because the garlic chicken dishes tend to have a sweet and spicy flavor. This is especially true if you bake it in the oven.
Next, you need to make sure your skillet or pot has a non-stick surface.
If your skillet or pot has a non-stick surface, use the lower rack to cook the chicken in the middle of the bottom rack. The juices in the chicken will drain out through the thin skin of the thigh. If you are concerned about the fats and oils left in the food, cook the recipe on a lower rack and remove the excess after about twenty minutes. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness, which can be done with a digital one or with a traditional thermometer.
In order to protect the skin-side of the chicken from burning, I like to sprinkle some extra virgin olive oil on it before cooking. I usually do this about thirty minutes before preparing the meal. The oil will prevent the skin-side of the chicken from burning, giving it a nice, even color. Once you’ve sprinkled in the extra virgin olive oil, place your chicken on the pan or pot, and turn it to medium low to cook. Check for doneness with a thermometer.
In order to add the seasoning to the sauce, you will need to use a small bowl that has been coated with olive oil.
Add about a teaspoon of each salt and pepper, and mix them together thoroughly. Then, add your marinade (I prefer curry season). Stir this mixture well, and let your chicken sit in the marinade for about an hour or so. This will help to lock in the flavor.
After the time is right, you’re ready to cook your chicken thighs! Just place your skillet directly onto your gas range or burners, and turn it on low. If you’re cooking for a larger group of people, you might want to set your gas grill up so that you can put your dinner on immediately, and have the aroma and flavor released at the same time.
In fact, if you’re looking for some more great ideas for chicken thighs that are both delicious and easy to make, you might want to take a look at these quick recipes for a tossed salad. You can toss several salads together using some of my favorites ingredients and then top with some seasoned buttermilk. Using buttermilk in conjunction with seasoned buttermilk really elevates the flavor. This recipe works great with carrot, tomato, bell pepper, and cucumber salad as well. Don’t be afraid to experiment. If you get stuck, you can always just add in some seasoning and find other ways of improvising.
