Chicken Thigh Time!

Happy day people! It's a beautiful day and it's great to be alive. Quote I live by...even when it's raining & cold!
I of course love EASY & FAST recipes. Do not give me a recipe that takes 45 minutes to prep... no ones got time for that! So today I've got another quick recipe for you to get y'all through this Paleo Challenge craziness. Enter my 
Stupid Easy Chicken Thighs. Here we go...

Stupid Easy Chicken Thighs

1 1/2 pounds organic chicken thighs (boneless, however you could use bone-in that's but that's just what Wegmans had)
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 tsp. garlic powder or real garlic (1-2 cloves)
1/4 tsp. Italian seasonings
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt

Directions: Coat the bottom of a large skillet with the coconut oil and let it heat up.  Wash and pat the chicken thighs dry.  Place in the skillet giving the thighs appropriate amount of space to get delicious. Then top with half of the seasonings. (If you want other seasonings, go ahead I'm not stopping you. I am sure they are more delicious anyways :)  Cook for about 5-7 minutes on the first side and flip over add the remainder of the seasonings to finish cooking on the other side until the thighs are completely cooked through.  At this time eat them because they are hot and juicy..nommmm.

I paired my chicken thighs with summer squash even though it's not summer, and a half avocado. It was delicious. The end!

**Bonus: Roasted Summer Squash & Broccoli
2-3 yellow or green summer squash or zucchini 
1 medium head of broccoli, chopped into florets
1 Tb. coconut oil, melted
salt & pepper
fresh thyme
*optional: chili powder, red pepper flakes, etc.

Preheat oven for 400 degrees. Wash and cut squash into 1/4 in. slices and broccoli into florets.  Place onto a a foiled lines baking sheet.  Pour melted coconut oil over the slices/florets and sprinkle with salt &  pepper, thyme, and other seasonings if desired. Bake for 20-25 minutes until slightly golden :) Then enjoy!
