Cheap Low Carb Dinner: Chicken Thighs and Green Beans
This meal comes together with just a few inexpensive ingredients: Chicken thighs and green beans.
Chicken thighs are a tasty, yet cheap cut of chicken. Green beans are on sale right now for 99 cents a pound. Cheap, cheap, cheap.
Not to mention this meal has become one of my favorites as it is delicious too.
Ingredients for 4 People:
-8 chicken thighs with skin (assuming 2 per person) -4 tbsps. butter or olive oil -As much as you like of McCormick Perfect Pinch Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning (Love this stuff, it is awesome!) -1 1/2 lbs green beans -2 strips of bacon, diced -1/2 an onion, finely diced
1.Preheat oven to 400F (sometimes I cook it at 375F, so somewhere in there is great.)
2. Place thighs in a pan and smear the skin of each thigh with 1/2 tbsp. of butter and top with the McCormick seasoning--just shake it on, as much as you want.
3.Bake for 45-55 minutes. Don't take it out until the skin is nice and crisp.
4.While the chicken is cooking, steam the green beans for 5 minutes.
5.In a skillet, brown the onion and bacon. This takes 5-8minutes. Watch it closely so it doesn't burn!
6. Add the green beans and toss everything together.
7.Turn off the burner, put a lid on the pan and set aside while the chicken finishes cooking.
