I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Boneless Chicken Thighs Florentine

Yes, that means with spinach!

6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped sundried tomatoes
1 tbsp flour
1  1/2 cups milk
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 1/2 - 2 cups chopped spinach or mixed greens
1/3 cup parmesan

In an oven safe skillet heat oil and brown thighs over medium heat about 10 minutes.  Salt and pepper to taste and place skillet in a 375F oven for 15 minutes.

In the meantime prepare the sauce.
Heat butter in a saucepan and lightly brown the garlic. Add the sundried tomatoes. Stir in the flour and cook 1 minute until lightly golden, about 1 minute. Pour in the milk and stir until slightly thickened.

Add the red pepper flakes which give the sauce just the right amount of spice. Remove from heat and stir in the greens and parmesan.

Pour the sauce over the chicken...

Serve with rice or pasta.

Nothing wrong with a little mid-week elegance.

Serves 3-4
