Chicken Thighs with Rainbow Carrots

I’m not sure what to talk about first here the delicious chicken thighs or the amazing rainbow carrots. Since I put a carrot on top of the chicken thigh lets talk about the rainbow carrots.

It is interesting because the insides of the purple carrots are orange. Purple carrots are usually very sweet. Red ones don’t really taste different but they do contain lycopene, the antioxidant found in tomatoes. These carrots are full of healthy nutrients. Have the kids peel them for you while you start the chicken. When you get the kids to participate in the kitchen they are more likely to try whatever it is that they helped with.

You could be eating this delicious dinner in about 30 minutes, so it qualifies as fast and easy. It just looks like it takes all day.

When cooking in an iron skillet, put the pan on medium heat. Add the oil after the pan is hot. This will keep foods from sticking.

        Hi Mary,

        Yes it’s a big help. 6-8 pcs will be enough for me to cook and might last for a half a week maybe.

        Thanks for the reply
