I am so excited to share one of my favorite new dinners with you. I've even been making it for lunch when the kids aren't around so I don't have to share it. I know, I'm terrible, but it's seriously so good I want it all to myself.
This delicious recipe came from my friend Mary's fabulous new book, The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook: Simple Family-Friendly Recipes for Everyday Home Cooking (make sure to get your copy). Mary is a dear blogging friend and the genius behind the very popular blog, Barefeet in the Kitchen, where she cranks out simple recipes you are all going to love.
I can't tell you how exciting it is to get one of your friend's cookbooks in your hands. Knowing how hard they worked on it and remembering all the hills and valleys they went through to get it published! It's such an accomplishment.
This book was written specifically for the busy family in mind as it's full of quick and easy recipes to get dinner on the table and a whole section of stress free desserts. A couple of my other favorite recipes in the book have been the Cajun Roasted Potatoes and the Cheesy Southwest Beef and Potato Skillet you see above. They are so good.
Next week I already have the Honey Chipotle Meatloaf on my menu and the Lemon Lover's Pound Cake is calling my name. I really thing I'm going to make every recipe in this book.
Cutting the chicken into bite-sized pieces is what will take you the most time in this recipe. I'm used to cutting up chicken this way so for me it is not very time consuming. Once you get used to it, it will be lightening speed to the dinner table.
Chicken thighs are what make this do delicious. They keep their juiciness very well...in all recipes. I highly suggest sticking with them.
You can see the little flecks of chipotle chile in here, one of my absolute favorite ingredients. If you've never used them before, you are in for a treat.
Enjoy your NEW favorite dinner! And make sure to pick up a copy of The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook.
