About these ads

I have a 1-year-old, a 4-year-old, a husband, a job, a garden, a yard, and a house that we're always semi-renovating, among other things. In short, I have no time. Yet we still need to eat, quite regularly, in fact. And I want what we eat to be both delicious and good for us. So I am a big fan of this simple chicken – it's so easy and so good. And the grilling makes for easier clean up, too.

I like to use boneless, skinless thighs. Thighs are juicier than breasts, cook more quickly and are the perfect size, no cutting required. They're also a lot cheaper than breasts.
 
 As always, try to find meat from a farmer near you that uses humane and organic practices. Just a note that many small farmers can't afford to get organic certification even though they do farm using organic methods. So not having certification is not necessarily a reason to rule a good local source out. The beauty of buying locally is that you can go and visit to see for yourself and/or ask around to get a better sense of what a farm is like. (Or, if you live around here, you can also just go to Fleishers Meats in Kingston, N.Y.!)
