Gluten Free Green Chili Chicken Thighs are super easy to bake in the oven or cook all day in the crockpot!
Time is flying by! Who can believe it is Wednesday already! School gets out in 7 more school days for winter break! Yay! This week is a crazy week of Choir concerts, softball games, pre-finals and Christmas Parties!
It is a wonderful time of the year! I love the opportunities to gather with family and friends! I also look forward to the pajama days of watching movies and playing games once school break starts!
Last night our youngest daughter had softball practice with 15 minutes to change and eat before her choir call time. I fed her pasta and shrimp in the car as I drove from one location to the other! Some days are just like that.
I wanted to share a meal that is comforting and nutritious! Crazy nights make me think of the quiet ones I am able to sit and eat with my family! I hope you enjoy these green chili chicken thighs!
GREEN CHILLI CHICKEN WITH ROASTED ROOT VEGGIES AND QUINOA:
Let’s start with the Quinoa- I make mine in the rice cooker the same way I make rice. 1 cup Quinoa to 2 cups of water. You can size up the amounts from this ratio. You can also make it in your rice cooker!
Second- The root veggies- I washed and peeled the multi colored carrots and parsnips then tossed with evoo and herbs de province and baked in a 375 oven for about 30-45 min.
Green Chilli Chicken:
1. Put a little EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) in the bottom of a baking dish.
2. Arrange your chicken pieces in the pan. Sprinkle with S & P.
3. Pour Organic Green Chilli sauce over your chicken. I used organic chicken thighs and whole foods green chilli sauce.
4. I sprinkled a little grass fed shredded cheese over the chicken. You can omit if you don’t like cheese.
5. Bake Chicken in the oven with the veggies for about 45-60 min.
If you want to make this in the crockpot, add all of the ingredients to the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
