Previously I posted a recipe that I had made when I was in graduate school, which aptly was named "Graduate School Chicken". It was a one dish meal that was easy to make, cheap and tasty to eat.
Now that I am retired, I needed another one-dish meal with chicken that again would be easy to make and tasty to eat. Hence the newly named "Retirement Chicken".
Because I served it over rice, it is actually a two dish meal, but that is just a small technicality. I have now made it twice and both times to rave reviews, so this is definitely a keeper. Prep time is short and the cooking time is roughly the same time it takes to make the rice.
Give it a try. You don't have to be retired to make it!
(adapted very broadly from a recipe I found in the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que cookbook )
1 1/2# chicken thighs
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 small bunch of scallions, sliced including a bunch of the green part
1 cup or so chicken broth
1 cup or so barbeque sauce - any variety that you enjoy will work - I used a sweet and saucy one we had received from Colorado
1 1/2 tablespoons Turkish seasoning - this is probably a spice not in your spice rack. So use paprika, oregano and chili powder in one-third proportions
1 cup sour cream
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
rice of any variety that the chicken concoction is served over
Retirement Chicken...it's not just for retirees!
