Easy Like Thursday Evening Dinner

What do I cook when I really haven’t planned anything? Chicken! There’s always a few whole chickens, thighs, drums, and wings around. However, Mr. Hubbs had visited Mini Mart picked up a nice bag of quarters. So I thought I would some of them and braise the rest, and serve with plain white rice, and carrots. Simple, pretty quick, and uncomplicated. After all, I have to save the ‘kitchen business’ for Super Bowl Sunday in a few days!

A few fried green tomatoes completed it

Seasoned and searing

Give them a flip

Removed the chicken quarters from the pan, and sautéed onions, leeks, and red bell pepper until the onion was translucent–scrapping all the tasty morsels in the bottom of the pan

In goes that lovely garlic. Where would the world be without garlic I ask? Continue to saute until the garlic gives off its wonderful aroma

Returned the chicken quarters to the pan, added a few more onions on top along with some chopped fresh parsley.  Added one can of chicken broth, cover her up and simmer until the chicken is nice and tender

For the glazed carrots – I peeled and sliced 5 carrots and added them to the pan with 3 Tbsp butter, 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/3 cup of water. Simmer until the liquid is reduced and the carrots are tender. Very tasty!

The roasted chicken quarters were served with baked potatoes and mixed vegetables

And that was our simple Thursday Evening Dinner
