Sometimes you’ve got to stray out of your comfort zone and try something new….which is exactly what happened earlier this week when the contents of my fridge consisted of 2 courgettes, 3 chickens thighs, a red onion and 2 sweet potatoes…
So, naturally I chucked a load of spices into the mix and marinated the chicken to make a yummy dinner for 2 in less than 30 minutes!
Here’s how I did it!
I’d never cooked with chicken thighs before so there was a first for everything, so here goes!
Gently fry the chicken thighs in whatever oil you please – I use rapeseed as it’s healthier and I can use it on Slimming World
Chop your onion and courgettes. Oh and half the red pepper I found knocking around the bottom of my fridge… Add to the pan and reduce the heat so they simmer and cook through
To the pan I added a touch of paprika, mild curry powder, garlic and chilli
Whilst that’s cooking through, chop the sweet potatoes and I pop in the microwave for 6 minutes to soften. This saves time and washing up as it uses less pans!
Easy, peasy dinner that’s full of flavour and doesn’t need much time in the kitchen!
