Okay, so I’ve been working on a really simple dish recently. Boneless chicken thighs that you can cook in 10 min. All you do is heat up the cast iron pan to medium to medium-high, add a little oil, and then throw in the chicken. I just season the chicken once on each side as I cook with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. To create a nice crispy crust, I flip the chicken every minute. The result: Simple chicken thighs in 10 minutes. There is an elegance to simple ingredientsâ€¦ and surprisingly, it tastes much better than some of the fancier stuff I’ve tried cooking.
There’s a lot of truth in the old saying, “less is more”.
Another neat one you can do with this.. sear both sides “some”.. then transfer the chicken to a pan w/ a bit of white wine in it.. put that in the oven and let it cook until almost done.. then throw it BACK in the oil/searing pan to re-crust it.. you get a really nice braised taste from the wine w/out losing the crisp
