I have a confession. Some days, I just don’t feel like cooking. I know, I know, it’s hard to believe. I love to cook, and love to write about cooking. I love feeding people good food and showing others that you needn’t have a degree from a high and mighty culinary school to make a delicious, delightful meal. But after a long day, it can be hard to gather the energy and desire to really cook a full dinner. Sometimes, I just don’t feel like chopping any vegetables or trimming any beef. Sometimes the idea of sifting together dry ingredients is akin to having a cavity filled.
Haven’t we all been there sometime?
In the summer, that is a call for a plate of cheese, tomatoes and basil that is drizzled with olive oil and perhaps some balsamic vinegar. But come fall, hot meals are what we desire. That’s why I love this recipe for Thighs Over Rice from Sweetnicks. It’s a hot dish, made in one pan. It’s easy – ridiculously easy. And it’s a no-brainer to make. Pair it with a chopped salad or a side of steamed broccoli for a balanced meal.
Just a few notes: When I make this, I choose boneless chicken thighs and cook it with the same method laid out. I don’t change the time for cooking.
