Your Maryland Chicken made for a great meal on a cold wintry night here in Saskatchewan. Made a half recipe using chicken thighs. Not having fresh beans I upped the carrots and cauliflower and tossed in some broccoli to add color - comes to the table looking as good as it tastes. This is our kind of chicken, the recipe one that will see to repeats. Made for Partying The Diabetic Way.
Personally I found it rather bland but the DM loved it and to be honest would be more than happy to make her a one portion serve in a small skillet. I didn't quite have enough beans on the vine so added peas (which I know the DM also prefers) and well when I checked the vegie draw in the fridge no cauliflower or brocolli (which I was going to add in place of beans, hence the peas) and I used a sliced red onion, and quartered some baby potatoes (which I microwaved for a few minutes first before adding with rest of vegies) and as I scaled it back to 2 2/3 serves for 3 and used 1.2K chicken thighes on the bone and removed the skin and excess fat (7 thighes) was plenty for the 3 of us. Thank you Mikey for a recipe which I know I can make for the DM (1 pot) on those nights we want our spicy hot foods, made for Partying the Diabetic Way.
Very good!! We don't like cauliflower so just up'd the amount of green beans and carrots; otherwise made as directed. This is a healthy meal that still has a ton of flavor. Made for Partying the Diabetic Way Tag Nov/Dec 2009.
