Cozy Roasted Chicken Thighs

Hey, Readers!

My Other Half loves to be in our kitchen, whipping up his fabulous food creations for our family to sit, eat and enjoy. One dish I get excited about him making is his Cozy Roasted Chicken Thigh meal. It is colourful, flavourful and perfect for the cooler days of the year. It is a meal I always go back for seconds (and sometimes thirds) of when it is made, and can also serve as an intimate meal for two when scaled down.

3.   Place cooked tomatoes onto a cookie sheet and roast in the oven with the casserole dish for 45 mins or until the tomatoes are crispy.

4.   After 55 minutes have passed, uncover chicken and add tomatoes to the top of the meat.

5.   Turn the oven up to 375°F and place back into the oven for 20 minutes to allow for the chicken skin to crisp.

6.   Take casserole dish out of the oven. Spoon out the vegetables and meat onto each plate.




7.   Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over each chicken thigh when plating.


Dig in!

That’s it! This is how my other half creates one of my absolute favourite dishes. This Cozy Roasted Chicken dish can also be made with the whole leg and is so delicious. It only takes a casserole dish and a frying pan to cook this dish and is a welcome meal during the fall and winter months. It has become a tradition to enjoy this meal on Christmas Eve to get ready for the Man in Red that evening. I can’t wait to devour this dish again!
