Welcome to my site!
I'm Cindy, and I love to cook! And, I love to eat... hence the size of my rear end! I come from a long line of cooks. My great great Grandmother was a cook in the original Harvey Houses. My grandmother Julia was an awesome cook, and my mom was incredible. I owe my skills to these great women. Especially my Mom who said this to me about making gravy... "Cindy Lynn, wallpaper paste is wallpaper paste & gravy is gravy. Never the two shall meet!" Shall we say my first experience at making gravy left a little bit to be desired! Thank the high heavens my cooking skills have improved since then! Enjoy!

Rosemary Chicken with White Beans

This is another wonderful recipe from the Cooking Light cookbook. (2004 edition) It is one of my favorites. Full of flavor and relatively easy to make.

The cookbook suggests serving this with a spinach salad spiked with slivered red onions and drizzled with red wine vinaigrette. Yum!


Ingredients:

2 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
8 skinless boneless chicken thighs (tonight I didn't want to take the time to bone the chicken, so I used whole thighs without the skin. Worked perfectly)
1 (14.5 oz) can stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 (15oz) can navy beans, drained and rinsed well
1/4 cup chopped pitted kalamata olives

Directions:

1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Combine rosemary, salt and pepper; sprinkle evenly over one side of the chicken.
3. Place chicken in pan, seasoned side down; cook 3 minutes. (if using bone in thighs, cook 10 minutes)
4. Add tomatoes and beans. Cover and simmer 10minutes, or until chicken is done.
5. Stir in olives.

Yield 4 servings - 2 thighs & 3/4 cup bean mixture.

I'm trying this one asap. Just bought thighs last week, unsure at the time of what to do with them.
