Weeknight Dinner: Chicken Thighs

In an effort to post more, I am going to keep things short and sweet. A regular item on our dinner menu are chicken thighs. We buy them in bulk at Costco, they come 4 to a package and usually are dinner and lunch the next day. My favorite way to prepare them is baking them for 35-45 minutes in a 400 degree oven. I try a variety of spices and sauces to keep this regular menu item interesting. Last night we tried this recipe. They were very flavorful although I think I would prefer more mustard next time. I cooked a mixture of potatoes, onions, carrots and celery underneath in the sauce, which made for an easy side. We also had broccoli bagna cauda from Nom Nom Paleo, which is probably our favorite way to eat broccoli. Don't fear the anchovy, it is delicious! This was pretty easy to prepare, the most tedious part being cutting and prepping the vegetables.
