You can’t go wrong with a one pan meal that includes the entire meal, takes about 10 minutes to prep and is a super easy to clean up. This one pan chicken thighs and vegetables dish is exactly that.
I have definitely been on a chicken thigh buying kick. This may be my third or fourth recipe this month using chicken thighs. This is partially because they are much cheaper in bulk at my local Sam’s Club and since I buy them fresh I try to make one or two recipes before I need to freeze the rest. I also keep seeing amazing recipes like this Crock Pot Chicken Thighs recipe from my friend Jodi over at Create Kids Club that inspire me to cook more often with chicken thighs. Her crock pot chicken thighs recipe specifically calls for just a few simple ingredients (including beer!), so it’s a must try in my opinion.
And I am back with another one pan recipe. I can’t get enough of one pan or slow cooker meals. They are just that simple. This one pan chicken thighs and vegetables recipe is not only simple, but it’s so flavorful with the addition of honey. The vegetables are even extra tasty since they also soak up the honey flavor.
I’m sure you’ve heard that dark meat is not the best choice when it comes to choosing the healthiest part of the chicken. However, after recently comparing boneless skinless chicken thighs to chicken breasts I realized there is NOT that big of a difference. In fact, dark chicken actually contains the GOOD kind of fats (monounsaturated) that our bodies need, it’s the skin that you should avoid. And this I just learned after reading it on Jodi’s blog. This just goes to show that dietitian’s can’t remember everything nutrition-related!
What’s your favorite healthy way to cook chicken thighs? I’d love to hear your ideas!
