Chicken and rice

Chicken thigh, broccoli, and brown rice

Eating like I’m on some kind of diet? No, this was just what was easy today. I have a miserable head cold and didn’t want to have to work very hard at dinner tonight. I baked some chicken thighs with some dry seasonings on them (oregano, salt and pepper, garlic and onion powders), warmed up frozen broccoli with butter, and did the same for some brown rice (that I originally made to go with leftovers from Chinese delivery).

Herb roasted chicken and potato medley, and Brussels sprouts

I call it “spa chicken” when I mix up a bunch of herbs and oil and slather it all over the whole chicken before I roast it. For this one I used some lemon zest and juice as well as rosemary, parsley, thyme, and garlic. In the same pan, I roasted potatoes, carrots, celery root, and onion.

On the side, I braised some Brussels sprouts in a little bit of butter and water until they were very soft.
