Simple Chicken Dinner

Adding chopped garlic scapes.

Daddy is back and life is slowly returning to normal. While we are still very busy most of our school year activities are ending and we should have some free time soon. Our busy schedule has meant that meal planning has been vague at best. Sometimes I just pick up our favorite veggies and cuts of meat and hope for the best when we get home. That is how we ended up with this yummy meal!

Our dinner consisted of fingerling potatoes, cut and drizzled with Sea Salt, pepper and olive oil then baked at 400F for 20 minutes. Frozen Cascadian Farms Organic Peas were quickly heated up in the microwave after the boneless, skinless chicken thighs were cooked in a bit of broth. The addition of mushrooms and garlic scapes made the chicken very tasty and flavored it during the 20 minutes in the microwave on high.

Audrey helped with the chicken, potatoes and then set the table. I like to set up the meal prep and let her do the rest. Once the chicken was in the Pyrex and the ingredients set out I pretty much let her do the rest. For the potatoes I sliced them and placed them on the baking dish. She brushed them with oil and sprinkled on the salt.

After helping with the food Audrey set the table for her and sister. She also got the milk out and poured a glass for each of them. I like to let her pour when the container gets low and easier for her to handle.

The meal required a little less than 10 minutes prep and then cooked for 20 minutes. In 30 minutes I had a family sitting around the table eating real food. 

What are your family favorites? Do you have an easy, go-to meal that everyone enjoys? We are working on more of these as we only have a few currently.
