Quick Pan-Seared Chicken Thighs


Things have been pretty crazy here recently. Between having company from out of town here on an extended stay and my dad’s cancer, we’ve been busy. It’s the end of the school year. And my business has been requiring extra time while we launch a new (surprise) project, finish up three print books and start filming for our eClasses.

This dish is quick, simple and easy. It makes a great week-night dinner when you don’t have much hands-on time. I serve this with a side salad, a grain and one extra veggie from whatever’s on-hand and in-season and I’m in and out of the kitchen for dinner in about 25 minutes.

    Is this a “bake covered”, or “bake uncovered” dish? I’m assuming covered. Thanks!
