I love mushrooms and rarely pass up a recipe that has mushrooms in it. This chicken recipe is easy enough for a weeknight meal and I’d bet that most kids would enjoy it – I know mine would. My kids love mushrooms, too. Read more
Chicken thighs have always been one of my favorite meals. I’ve always preferred dark meat over light, and it doesn’t hurt that they tend to be inexpensive as well. But there’s always a danger that thighs will turn out too rubbery, especially if cooking bone-in, skin-on thighs. I’ve cooked a fair bit of chicken thighs in my day and in my humble opinion, the best way to cook them is grilling or broiling. Or at least, baking them and then turning on the broiler at the end to crisp up that skin. It makes a huge difference to the overall outcome. And unlike breasts, thighs are pretty hard to overcook. My husband and I have experimented with a couple of recipes, and we’ve found that five to ten extra minutes in the oven, plus a few minutes under the broiler, makes them far less greasy and rubbery.
With the amount of Sriracha in these, you’d think these would be pretty spicy. But they’re not really. I’d say that these barely even register on the heat meter. My kids all love them, and like many small children, they are averse to anything even mildly hot. But somehow, that Sriracha gives the thighs incredible flavor. The whole marinade together – the yogurt, the lemon, the garlic, the rosemary and the Sriracha – seem to add up just right. I always make a double batch when I cook these thighs, because they are just as good re-heated the next day. Just make sure you reheat in the oven, and not in the microwave. The microwave is no friend to chicken thighs!
