Rusty Chicken Thighs

A slightly different take on baking chicken thighs. This dish is called “Rusty Chicken” because of the marinade. No one flavor dominates and it ends up not tasting like what you thought. So different Chefs just decided to name it after the color and not the ingredients! Don't let the marinade fool you it works very well! Master suggested that slave post nutritional information on the recipes. These are provided by any number of “calculators” available on the internet.

A great tasting chicken meal for pennies and most of the ingredients are right there in your cupboard already.

4-5 cloves garlic minced
1 yellow onion sliced thin
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
4 - 5 chicken thighs


Mince the garlic. Slice the onion on a mandolin slicer carefully.

  1. Mix garlic into maple syrup, soy sauce, mayonnaise, and vinegar until marinade is thoroughly combined.
    NOTE anytime you have to measure a sticky syrup, spray the measuring spoon first, and have a damp paper towel ready to wipe off the bottle neck before replacing the cap.

  1. Transfer chicken thighs to zipper bags (if using frozen be sure to take out the wax paper.) Spoon marinade over chicken; seal and mix with fingers until coated. Refrigerate about 3 hours; if preferred a quicker method is to leave them on the counter top sealed in the bag for an hour.

  1. let stand about 30 minutes at room temperature. Pre heat oven to 400 degrees

  1. Spray a baking dish and lay a bed of the onion slices. Place the chicken pieces on this. Slide into the oven for 45 – 55 minutes on 400°. Super juicy, very good flavor! Cooking skin side down first allows the chicken to become firm on that side before flipping over.
  2. Check with thermometer for 150 degrees.
    Change oven to broiler on HIGH Let the chicken finish cooking under the broiler (about 5-7 minutes) The higher heat will react with sugars in the marinade and produce the flavor this dish is noted for.
  3. Transfer chicken to a platter, let rest for 5 minutes, and serve. ==================

Remembered Love
Who does not remember love?
Except the very young
nor felt the fire on the lips
electricity on tongue.
If you have lived a little bit
You've heard your love song sung.

To you I speak in measured words
To you who know the score.
Remember now that sweetest past
When hearts first tried to soar.

Reap memories like harvest hay
Old joys are brought to mind
We'll let them start
to warm our heart
As lost beloveds may.

Our cups in hand, think back with me
let time just fade away.
Remembered love is waiting
in our brief yesterday.

That face, that smile, that lost embrace
once again returns.
Autumns clouds are chased away
forgotten passion burns.

Yet now we're free to edit out
The hurts and biting pain.
Forever doesn't last that long
or we all would be insane.

Let us seek those joyous times
Feel lips and comfort hugs.
We'll overlook the heartache
ignore heartstrings sharp tugs.
For we will find
what's left behind are most efficient drugs.

A smile, a thoughtful memory
with each warm coffee sip.
Makes a start
defrosts the heart
and lets the balance tip.
Lean back, relive that youth again
when hearts still felt a touch
when laughs still burst upon our lips
and oh we loved so much!

And as we share love's memories,
all soft they cuddle around.
and warm our feet, our hearts, our soul
forgotten “happy” found.

So take a trip to yesterday
and let your heart go roam.
Remembered love's a child at play
that wants to be called home.

Remembered Love” Dan White 25 SEP 2013
