Well, well.  I’m coming down the home stretch of finishing my cookbook manuscript.  Of course, this is crunch time and I don’t mean potato chips. It’s a time crunch.  I’m T minus 11 days and counting.  It’s seems paradoxical to say that I have so little time for cooking because I’m writing a cookbook.  Now that the recipe writing portion of the cookbook is over, I look for ways to get out of cooking or cook things that are as simple as they can be.  I did manage to throw together these Sage Roasted Chicken Thighs tonight.  My husband peeled and slice some fresh cucumbers for us.

The next few days will be filled with me putting the finishing touches on my manuscript and adding special things that  help tell my story. I must confess I’m making myself cry a lot but I think that’s good. The photos I take and the things I write are guided by my heart and not my brain.

This is an exciting and exhausting time. I couldn’t be happier.

Y’all come see us!

 Sage Roasted Chicken Thighs

The prep time for this dish is about 45 seconds. Season chicken and throw it in a well-seasoned skillet and roast it in the oven. 

Fresh sage

4 chicken thighs, bone-in and skin-on

cooking oil

4-1-1 seasoning

In a well-seasoned skillet, throw down some down sage leaves.  An exact number isn’t required.  Just put in enough that all the chicken thighs will be laying on some.  I have a healthy sage plant so I don’t have to be stingy with the amount of sage that I use.

Sage

 

Rub cooking oil over both sides of the chicken thighs.  Sprinkle on 4-1-1 liberally.

Place in a skillet skin side up.  Add more sage leaves around the pieces of chicken.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for one hour or until the internal temperature of the thighs is 165 degrees.

Remove, cover  and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

    Jackie I know your cookbook will be wonderful…full of memories and good food. Some of our most favorite memories are centered around food. I think we Southerns are better at that than anyone! We just love to eat and proudly say…this was my Grandmothers recipe.

      Jean,

      We do take a lot of pride in our food heritage as much as our family heritage. The two are entwined. I like the way the book is shaping up.

      Thank you, Jean!
