Oven-cooked deboned chicken thigh on bread with fennel salad and NQN’s Thai dressing

I was reading Lorraine’s blog this morning and she described a fennel salad and a Thai-style dressing. It looked really good. #NotQuiteNigella I’ve adapted Lorraine’s recipe.

Deboned pan-fried chicken thigh with broccolini and kale sprouts

I’ve now finished all the pizza dough and other leftover stuff from the weekend. I’m back to the regular weeknight routine of chicken. I’ve been mixing things up and alternating between thigh meat and wing meat lately. This week, it’s thigh meat.

Oven baked deboned chicken thigh and crispy peas

Hmmm…I really lacked imagination and motivation tonight.

I’d left a chicken thigh dry brining in the refrigerator overnight so knew I had that. I just couldn’t be bothered making a salad and I had some baby peas in the freezer. I’ve enjoyed using a mortar and pestle lately for grinding whole peppercorns and iodised sea salt crystals so I did that for a seasoning on the dried chicken skin.

Pan-fried deboned chicken thigh

I’m really enjoying the extra effort to remove the femur from my chicken thighs. Sometimes I tie them up and use surgical knots, tonight though I just laid it flat and seasoned it with iodised salt, freshly ground black pepper, and some fresh thyme and rosemary.

Deboned roast chicken thigh

Well, today I had a big lunch. I went out with a fellow consultant and our trainees to a local Chinese restaurant, viz., Garran Kitchen. We had duck, bean curd with chicken, pork, and beef.

Tonight I wanted something light but rather than just stick a chicken thigh in the oven I thought I’d play with my meat first.
