Simple Chicken Thighs with Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes…A one pot meal!

Simple Chicken Thighs with Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes...A one pot meal!

This was honestly one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Maybe because it was comforting on a cold rainy day. Maybe it was because I cooked it all in one pot and barely had any dishes to do. Maybe because simple food really is the best food. Whatever the reason, I will be making this meal again and again. This was a simple, no fuss, no muss, delicious meal! I love that.

How to Make Simple Chicken Thighs with Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes…A one-pot meal!

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Heat the olive oil in a large OVEN PROOF Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Remove any excess fat from the thighs then season both sides with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Place the chicken, skin side down, in the hot pan. Cook for 6-7 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown. Carefully, tilt the pan and remove all the oil (this will make the dish healthier and also will prevent the veggies and chicken from being greasy). Once all the oil is gone from the pan, flip the chicken over and move over to one side of the pan. Add the asparagus and grape tomatoes to the other side of the pan then season lightly with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Place into the oven and cook for 25 minutes, or until chicken has cooked through.

I’ve made that recipe numerous times over the years and I’m so pleased with that wonderful roasted flavor and not all the goo of other sweet potato recipes.
