Baked chicken thighs skinless

Searching for baked chicken thighs skinless?  We have  a baked chicken thighs skinless recipe to share with you today.   

Have I mentioned I really do not enjoy cooking sometimes?  Well, if I did not mention it, I am now...

Sometimes I get tired of the same ole' thing and then whatever we have is what ends up being dinner.

Sometimes dinner is whatever is getting ready to expire.  Do you plan dinner around this too?

I am curious to know how many people out there plan their dinners?  I have mentioned before my aunt planned her entire month out.

Well, I am not that organized for one, and how do I know what I will be in the mood for a month away?  I do not know what I will be in the mood for tomorrow.  Do you?  

I am just not a planner period.  Shh... do not let very many people know this... some people think I am anal about everything in life and plan everything.  LOL.  I must have them fooled...

Baked Chicken Thighs Skinless & Veggies

  1. 1 package of chicken thighs skinless (thawed)
  2. 1 red onion
  3. 1 bag frozen green beans (16 oz) 
  4. 8 small red potatoes (quartered) 
  5. 1/2 t paprika
  6. 1/2 t garlic powder
  7. 1/2 t oregano
  8. salt and pepper to taste 
  9. olive oil  

I took chicken thighs out of the freezer this morning and decided we would have that, but I decided against my standard sweet and spicy chicken thighs.  

We had some red potatoes that would be going bad soon if I did not use them and I decided chicken and potatoes sounded really good.

I also did not feel like slaving over the stove tonight so I decided to make life simple for myself and got a baking dish out and set the oven to 350 degrees.

I put the chicken thighs in the bottom of the baking dish, sprinkled the paprika, oregano, and garlic powder over the chicken.  I added salt and pepper and then sprayed a little olive oil on them.

I sliced one red onion and placed it over the chicken thighs skinless.  I LOVE red onion, do you?  It is my favorite of the onions, especially on a salad! SO GOOD!

Then I decided to cut up the small red potatoes I had and quartered them and put over the chicken and red onion.

Next I opened a bag of frozen green beans and sprinkled them over the chicken, red onion, and potatoes.  I added salt and pepper to the veggies, and added a dash of garlic powder to the entire dish.

Mr. VS says no vampires would be interested in me with all of the garlic I consume.  I will never tire of it and tend to put it in most dishes.

I threw that baby in the over and set it for 350 degrees for 1 hour and decided I was entitled to a break.  It's been a long week and it is not even Friday yet.  So sad... 

All made up and thrown in the oven 

DONE!  Are you like me and despise prep, and taking an entire evening to make one dinner?  Life is short, I do not try to drag dinner prep out.

My grandmother who is 98, loved to cook and bake in her hay day.  If you were not taking all day to make dinner then you were not doing it right.  She would tell you as much too, no qualms about it.  She was a firecracker and honestly still is... just much slower and not getting around as well as she once did. 

She is living with my mom now and sleeps a lot.  She is always dreaming about cooking and baking food.  That makes me laugh when I hear it since it really was her life.  Life was centered around the dinner table at her house.  

There were always cookies, candy, fudge, and ice cream on hand.  All homemade, minus the ice cream.  Of course, my grandparents did make their own ice cream on occasion too.  They really knew how to do it all.  Sometimes, I wish I were more like them.  Self sufficient in most every way of life.  I feel like we have really lost touch with that side of life.    

Isn't it sad how much our lives have changed?  Dinner now is just a hurry up and get it over with as quick as possible instead of the family gathering around the table and chatting about their day.   

I long for the days of Beaver Cleaver.  I guess there is no going back, only moving forward... Mr. VS and I decided long ago if children ever graced our home, we will have that style of life for them.  We think it is important for kids to be just that, kids.  They grow up way too fast.    

Since it is just the two of us and peanut, we tend to eat dinner in our tv room.  We always have dinner together with peanut of course.  He is always begging for anything you will give him or if there is a mishap of something being dropped, it will not be there for long.  The five second rule?  No worries with him around.

I do like to make extra for dinner so I can get two meals out of one.  Cuts back on the cooking and coming up with meals every night of the week.  

What does dinner look like in your home?  Do you plan for two meals out of one?  Do you plan ahead?  Do you enjoy cooking?  We would love to hear about your meal planning since we are on the no plan, plan.  😉
