Chicken thighs are coated with a seasoning mix composed in part of typical Mexican flavors: cumin and oregano. They are then cooked on the stovetop for an easy, flavorful meal. The thighs may be eaten as a main dish accompanied by sides of tortillas, refried beans, tomato salsa and perhaps Mexican rice. Or consider them as fillings for warm corn tortillas. Either way, I think you'll like these -- both for their flavor and for their ease of preparation!
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 2 tablespoons olive oil or 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Mix the garlic, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper on a wide plate or baking dish. Put chicken thighs on top, then turn them over to coat with the seasoning mix.
- Put the olive oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the chicken thighs and cook 7-8 minutes. Turn the thighs over and cook 7-8 minutes longer or until thighs are cooked through.
