Garlic & Herb Roasted Chicken
Hey it's Seasoned™ friends! I want to let you in on a little secret... I referred to this recipe as garlic & herb roasted chicken, but the truth is the chicken was boiled for majority of the time, then broiled for less than 10 mins. Phew, so now that we have that out the way, let's get to #cookingwithitsseasoned 😊
1 pack of chicken thighs (~2 lbs)
1 small onion (diced)
2 springs of thyme
2 cloves (optional)
1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 medium bell pepper (diced)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2-3 tablespoons of coconut aminos (by Coconut Secret)
No-stick olive oil cooking spray (by PAM)
1/2 tablespoon of parsley (by it's Seasoned™)
1 tablespoon of Italian herb seasoning
1 tablespoon of garlic & herb seasoning (by it's Seasoned™)
1/2 tablespoon of creole tang seasoning (by it's Seasoned™)
2 tsp of ground black pepper
1 tsp of sea salt (adjust according to your preference)
First things first, make sure you trim the fat off your chicken, and wash it. Yes! I said wash your chicken, please trust me with this one. After you have carefully trimmed off the unnecessary fat off your chicken and place it aside.
Juice lemon(s) then add 2-3 tablespoons of coconut aminos to a bowl.
Now, add your dry seasonings (garlic & herb, creole tang, ground black pepper, Italian seasonings, and sea salt) to your lemon juice and coconut aminos mixture and whisk it in.
Rub in the seasoning mixture prepared onto your chicken pieces. Then using a fork or a skewer, poke small holes in your chicken (this will help the marinating process). If you have time to let your chicken marinate keep it covered for about 30 mins to an hour. If you are pressed for time, move on to step 5.
On low-medium heat add the olive oil, and minced garlic.
Sauté the garlic until it is fragrant, then add your chicken thighs, thyme leaves, diced onion, cloves, and bell pepper to the pot. Place the lid on the pan, and cook the chicken until the juice runs clear (about 30-40 minutes).
Preheat the oven to a low broil, add some PAM nonstick spray to a baking pan, then add your pieces of chicken.
Broil on low for about 5 mins (or until the skin is brown and golden), then flip the chicken and repeat.
Drizzle some of the gravy from the original pot that you used to boil the chicken in on your chicken.
Finally enjoy 😋
