Hello there! So today I wanted to finish some boiled chicken thighs I had on my fridge and I decided to prepare a new recipe that is easy to make and tastes awesome. I didn’t wanted to use the oven and I wanted to save the calories of the breadcrumbs, so I prepared a no breadcrumb chicken parmesan on a skillet. I’m going to describe the recipe starting from zero, but if you already have cooked chicken, you can skip the first part. And this is the recipe:
4 chicken thighs skinless and boneless
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of diced carrots
8 oz of sour cream
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 slices of onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of skim milk
If you know how to cook chicken, that’s awesome, cause that’s what we are going to prepare here. My recipe is more than just tossing chicken in boiling water, but i warranty you that the flavor is better.
Fill a pot with 3 cups of water to prepare 4 thighs, if you want to prepare more, adjust quantities. Toss you skinless boneless thighs in the pot, a table spoon of salt, the slice of onion, the garlic and when it breaks to a boil, add two stems of cilantro. Let it boil until the chicken is tender. Remove from the stove. You can drain the broth and keep it for a future recipe, here there’s no waste, just remove the onion, garlic and cilantro and toss them in the trash can. Now you should have your chicken ready. You can chop it or shred it, however you want.
In a skillet pour the olive oil, the other slice of onion thinly chopped, the other garlic clove thinly chopped and let it season til the onion looks transparent. In the meantime pour the diced tomatos, the diced carrots, the milk and the sour cream in a blender or food processor and blend til the mixture has a uniform creamy red color. Add the cooked onion and garlic and give it a second blend.
Return to your skillet and pour the mixture you just blended. Add one bay leave, a pinch of oregano, a pinch of thyme, a pinch of basil, black pepper, salt and let it set until it starts boiling. Add the parmesan cheese and taste to check the flavor.
Add the chopped or shredded chicken to your skillet. You can serve in a bed of pasta. Voilá! you are all set!
