Wednesday: Chicken and a Side, All in One Pot
Chicken thighs are flavorful, hard to screw up and inexpensive. If you're wondering how to turn them into a complete meal, though, look no further than this rich-tasting dish. It starts with browning the thighs in oil until the skin is crisp and brown. In goes some chopped onion, along with two staples from the canned-food aisle: tomatoes and cannellini beans. Then you slide the whole thing into the oven for 20 minutes. The chicken ends up moist, and the tomatoes turn into a sauce for the softened beans.
