EASY Chicken Entree Recipe
(Cooking & Baking Month)
First of all, sorry about the delay in getting this month of Cooking & Baking recipes started! I am so excited to have the help from fellow bloggers over the next few posts! This week, I would like to introduce a fellow blogger who shares good looking, healthy recipes! I chose to share an easy chicken entree recipe of hers that looks delicious! I could always use more protein, and we usually have chicken and most of these ingredients on hand.
Meet Jena, from www.naughty-kitchen.com.
I concentrate on making healthy foods focusing on low sodium. I don’t like my recipes to fall under food segregation or being classified into a category. There are many such as Vegan, Vegetarians, Paleo, Whole 30, Clean Eating, Pescatarians, Plant Based, Low-Carb, Keto and so forth. If you were to segregate me, I would be placed under all categories to live a healthy lifestyle with a big emphasis on the eating a Plant Based lifestyle. I still create homemade meals for my family and friends yet alter them with their dietary needs and concerns. You’ll find those recipes here!
Easy Chicken Entree Recipe – Jena’s Maple Lemon Glazed Chicken Thighs
Do you need a new Chicken recipe to try? Maybe a savory sweet tasting protein to make? How about making this Baked Maple Lemon Glazed Chicken Thighs!
Yes Tootz, It’s another glutton recipe for your dinner time flow. I have been making various chicken dishes for Naught-E as he needs protein while he’s at work. He loves chicken! LOL! He’s usually on his feet all day so when he comes home from slaving away, I try to re-energize him with delicious chicken dinners with veggies.
So don’t ding me for baking these on a silpat. I put the Maple Lemon Glazed Chicken Thighs on the silpat and then on top of a baking pan. Besides these silpats are easier for me to wash. I tend to use Chicken Thighs because it isn’t dry like Chicken Boobiez when it comes to baking.
MAPLE LEMON GLAZED CHICKEN THIGHS GLAZE:
I used fresh lemons and it’s zest to give a more lemony flavor for the glaze. I religiously use my organic coconut aminos because of it’s sweet soy flavor. If you don’t have any, feel free to use low-sodium soy sauce or tamari. You can find them in the asian isle of any grocery store. Then I used Organic Maple Syrup which is the best part. MMM! Sprinkled in some garlic and onion powder dusts as usual and then chopped organic chives. I thicken the sauce with cornstarch and water.
As far as side dishes goes, I like adding veggies. Specially dark greens like spinach that were used here. I did make a little more of the glazed and saute the spinach in. I added about 3 gloves of minced garlic cause we both like the taste and it’s super good for the heart. Don’t skip out on garlic especially when you get older. Benefits of using garlic: They lower the blood pressure and cholesterol, has fewer calories, plus they make you live longer. I hated garlic when I was younger but as I started cooking with them, it brings in more flavor to any dish.
