Chicken Thighs and Pasta
Sometimes I wonder what I’m going to cook for lunch. I’ve cooked hundreds if not thousands of dishes so what new twist can I put on things?
I happened to be at my mother’s place, and I saw she had really nice-looking carrots. I couldn’t resist and I took two for myself.
I had boneless skinless chicken thighs at home, which is one of my favorite things to eat because it’s such a juicy tasty cut and lends itself well to so many recipes.
I always have pasta in my pantry and I started to conceive of the recipe.
I wanted it to be quick, fuss-free, and ready for lunch.
And for the record, it came out delicious! Such a classic kid-friendly meal. I guarantee you’ll be eating it straight out of the pan.
I love the combination of tender chicken thighs, vegetables and pasta. The blend of flavors is a real winner! Not a lot of work, watch the video so you can see exactly how I made it. A simple and tasty recipe that you’ll want to add to your recipe binder.
