Seeing the Thighs of Southern Italy
you on track for healthy living this year.
Traditional flavors with a bright touch that will
make you think you are dinning in Salerno
overlooking the Mediterranean.
If you are so inclined or your budget allows, pop
open some Chianti and serve with a brown and
serve Italian loaf from the oven.
4 chicken thighs, with bones
½ teaspoon salt, plus 1 teaspoon
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup olive oil
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
3 slices bacon, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
½ cup white wine balsamic vinegar
zest of 1 orange
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves
½ cup chicken stock
¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
Do your cutting: Chop the garlic, cut the
pepper and zest the orange.
Season the chicken with ½ teaspoon salt and
½ teaspoon pepper.
In a Dutchoven, heat the olive oil over
medium heat. When the oil is hot, cook
the chicken until browned on both sides.
(about 5 minutes a side)
Remove from the pan and set aside.
Keeping the same pan over medium heat,
add the peppers & bacon and cook until the
peppers have browned and the bacon is
crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and
cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes,
balsamic, and herbs. Using a wooden spoon,
scrape the browned bits off the bottom of
the pan. Return the chicken to the pan, add
the stock, and bring the mixture to a boil.
Reduce the heat add the zest and simmer,
covered, until the chicken is cooked through,
about 20 to 30 minutes.

So blissful to be serving my Master Indy

To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
