Tasty Tuesday – Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

Hello all! My coworker shared another great recipe with me. I’ve made it about three times now and it has definitely been added to my dinner rotation! It’s that good and so easy, perfect for a weeknight meal. It has become my go to meal on Wednesdays because I take a late Y Strong class. I have everything prepped and my husband can have dinner ready as soon as he makes it home, which is normally an hour and a half before I make it back in from the gym.

The recipe can be found on Pinterest. If you’re not into pinning, here is the Recipe‘s source and it’s listed below:

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side; set aside.
  • Melt remaining tablespoon butter in the skillet. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in brown sugar, honey, oregano, thyme and basil until well combined. Return chicken to the skillet.
  • Place into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 175 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Serve chicken immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

Mods: I’ve found that doubling the sauce makes it that much better! Definitely use bone-in, skin-on chicken, and wings are great too!

Weekend in Review

Hello! My weekend was pretty lowkey! Friday, I had to desperately make a Target run! I have no idea how I let our household get down to our last roll of toilet paper, but I can now say, it’s happened to me. That had me feeling nervous and anxious, so I had to rectify that situation immediately!

Saturday, I barely made it to the gym for my class fooling around with my husband and our scheduled day to clean the garage, but I made it!

 

 The workout was great and had me still feeling the effects yesterday! I’ll go back to this Instructor. She was really good! Now, her peer, there is one, I will never waste my time with again and I mean that!

Sunday, the best part of waking up is my bae, the Keurig lol!

This is Bae!

I’m hooked on these K-Cups:

Cafe Bustelo Expresso

with this Creamer:

DD Creamer

 

In the afternoon, the first matinee per usual, we checked out the highly anticipated Straight Outta Compton movie and it did not disappoint!

If I wasn’t nervous about being in a movie theater, I would go see it again, it was that good, but I’m going to remain safe and just download the greatest hits!

Afterwards, we stopped at our local Logan’s to grab a bite to eat. I got the Steakhouse Salad and I must say it was really good! I’ve tried to order it before and they were out of Avocado, so I made sure to ask did the have any before placing my order.

That was my weekend, how was yours?

What I Wore Wednesday – Sequin Distressed Boyfriend Skinny Jeans

I shared earlier this week that I attended my friends’ 40th birthday party and I wore the perfect jeans that got all the compliments! Well, my shoes got compliments too lol. Here’s a lil back story on what I wore.

During the epic fail of Pink Sunday – the Lily Pulitizer launch at Target, I had to live vicariously through other lucky girls that got in on the fashion finds since I didn’t. While lusting over the IG posts, I stumbled upon a fashion bloggger out of Dallas that was wearing thee best blinged out jeans, gold sequins and I just had to have them. Check out Blingaholic88 ‘s post.

Here’s how I wore them:

What I Wore – Top: Belk (old), Jeans: Link below, Shoes: Target (Old)

 

The jeans can be purchased here.

NOTE: It took them a while to come, a month or longer!

Tasty Tuesday – Top Shelf Guacamole (Cantina Laredo’s)

I mentioned a few weeks ago, we had a Girl’s Night In Game Edition with a Mexican Theme. I volunteered to make Guacamole. We have a nice lil Tex Mex spot in our Uptown area that we frequent for Happy Hour that makes thee best tableside Guac! I had that on my mind and even considered driving out of the way to just pick some up, but good ‘ol Pinterest came through for me! But what had happened was, when I arrived, our hostess with the mostest had already made Guac, so I took my ingredients back home and made it for my damn self! lol

Recipe

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Using a fork, place it in the middle of the 1/2 lime and squeeze (turning fork) to get the juice in to the bowl. Add the sea salt, white pepper and granulated garlic and stir to combine.
  2. Cut avocado in half and remove the seed.
  3. With a dinner knife, score the avocado every ½ inch, turning knife length-wise and cross-wise to form ½-inch squares.
