Saturday Night Supper

After a week of hard work and lots of calves being born at Lowfields, I wanted to make something easy but delicious for our Saturday Night Supper.  I have seen chicken cooked this way before and have always wanted to try it.    Especially since we hadn't had proper suppers all week due to being so exhausted.   Don't be alarmed at the title of the recipe - it in no way includes frog legs!  

Frog Leg Chicken (named this way because if it was true frog legs, this is a typical way to cook them)
Take boneless skinless chicken thighs and dust with flour.  
In a cast iron skillet, melt butter and add floured chicken.  
Cook on both sides until cooked through and golden brown.

While you are cooking the chicken, roast one head of garlic in the oven.  Once done, mash the garlic out into some olive oil.  Add 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and a bunch of fresh thyme.   

We had the chicken and sauce over pasta but it would also be delicious over rice or mashed potatoes! 

Our Saturday Night Supper was accompanied by one of our favorite salads - it may sound like a weird combo but it really is great!   All it includes are grapefruit sections, sliced avocado, lemon juice and a little pepper.  
Our Saturday Night Supper - a lovely way to end the week!
