Brrr, its November. With Autumn well and truly down on us like a wolf at the fold, I thought it was time for some hot, nourishing, easy dishes. The featured ingredient this week is chicken thighs ~ which are not everyone’s favourite thing. To be honest, I have struggled to make a dish I like using chicken thighs.
However, all of these recipes look and sound great, and I can’t wait to try out a couple.
From Elise at Simply Recipes there’s this Sally Vargas one-pan paprika chicken with potatoes and tomatoes. Although it will take an hour to make, (15 minutes preparation, 45 minutes cooking), this is a really simple dish.

Also from Elise at simply recipes we have this great lemon chicken dish. This is really finger food and would go great with a really sharp beer.
Here’s something I really like the sound of. From Jessica Merchant at how sweet it is we have sticky apple cider bbq chicken. This recipe uses both apple cider and apple cider vinegar ~ what’s not to like.
Sticky Apple Cider BBQ Chicken
This recipe from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest can use either chicken breast pieces or chicken thighs. Actually I think the Hawaiian bbq skewers with sriracha honey butter will work better with chicken thighs. You know what? This is a 30 minute dish, and it looks fabulous.

I really, really, like the look of this Thai coconut curry chicken from Chungah at Damn Delicious. This recipe uses whole bone-in chicken thighs, and should be ready to eat in under an hour. How good is that?

This dish from Heather Christo doesn’t just use chicken thighs, (although you could make it like that), it uses a whole jointed chicken; thighs, legs, wings, breasts… But It also uses a lot of my favourite herb, rosemary. So, I’m going to try this recipe for rosemary cherry balsamic roasted chicken. Yummy…

I’ve included this recipe for crispy balsamic chicken by Lyndsay Funston for two reasons. Firstly because I am going to cook this tomorrow, and secondly it’s from a site called Delish who have a handy post entitled 20 amazing chicken thigh recipes. Lots of ideas there. Enjoy.

Finally for this Food on Friday we have a link to the vegetarian / vegan Cookie + kate. (Cookie is the dog ~ a vegetarian dog? Really?) This is a great, great post, so it’s included even though there isn’t a chicken thigh in site. From Cookie + kate; what to cook in November.
