Lemon Thyme Chicken




I really wanted to try some different kind of chicken recipe the other day...so I did. 
Firstly, let me tell you that I usually HATE chicken thighs and cooking them in a skillet. I did it anyways and it turned out GREAT!


HERE IS THE RECIPE:
Serves: 4-5
Prep time: 15 Mins
Cook Times: about 30 mins (give or take on size of chicken ect)
You will need a large skillet preferably a Cast Iron Skillet like the one below. (any heavy skillet will work though)





Ingredients:
1 Package of Chicken Thighs 
1 package of uncooked carrots
Lemon Pepper
1 tbsp Thyme (I used dried because I didn't have fresh)
Lime Juice
2 TABLESPOON Olive oil seperated
10 OZ Chicken Broth
Peas
Wide Egg Noodles
Butter/Margarine 



Step 1:
About an hour before cooking place chicken thighs 1 tbsp olive, some lemon pepper (to your liking) , squirt of lime juice, and 1 tbsp thyme in a zip lock bag and shake up.

Step 2:
Rinse, Peel and Chop Carrots and put into a bowl. 


Step 3:
Add 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil to skillet until hot.



Add carrots and stir around until browned







Heheheh My daughter had to get involved :)



Carrots should look like this ^^
When finished take out of the pan and put into bowl.



Step 4:
Add Chicken to the skillet over Medium heat. Cook for about 8 mins. IMPORTANT: don't move or flip chicken let cook !!!

When you Flip it it should be brown like the picture below.


Step 5:
Now you can add the Chicken broth, put the carrots back in and add salt and pepper if desired. Cover and let cook for about 20 mins or until chicken is done and veggies are tender.



Step 6:


Boil water and cook Egg Noodles according to package while the chicken is finishing cooking. Also, Cook peas (we prefer the steam in bag.

Step 7: 
Remove Chicken and place on a plate (or platter).
Mix in desired amount of peas and all of the carrots with the noodles. We add butter (optional) to the noodles.
When serving just place the Chicken with a little bit of broth on top of the noodle mix.

***I didn't have lemon slices on had but the make a great garnish and add some yummy flavor to the chicken**

  1. This looks so good. We are not carrot lovers in my house, but I bet I could sub in zucchini or broccoli for a slight twist.
