Versatile Mexican Chicken Thighs

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

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!

  2. 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.
