We watched this movie while I prepared and cooked up this tasty chicken thigh dish...
Nebraska (2013) is about Woody, (played by the exceptional Bruce Dern)
who lives in Billings Montana.
Woody thinks he's won a big sweepstakes prize.
He wants his son David, (played by Will Forte) to take him to Lincoln, Nebraska to claim his million dollar prize.
Woody's wife Kate, is played by the uber amazing, super talented,
coolest woman ever, June Squibb.
Goodness gracious, June was 83 when they filmed this.....83!!!!! I love you June Squibb!!!! Could you be any cooler??!! Will you be my new auntie?
as Peg Nagy,
was exceptional as well.
I loved everything about Nebraska....every.thing!!!
Nebraska was nominated for six (6!!!)
Best Director (Alexander Payne)
Best Actor (Bruce Dern)
Best Supporting Actress (June Squibb, my new auntie)
This is the trailer for the movie.
Red Alert: This trailer has swears in it! Several of them. Like eight swears. You will not care for this movie if you don't like movies with swears in them.
Although I will tell you, my mother-in-law is a refined lady and she loved this movie too.
Anyhoo, let's get back to this
tasty chicken thigh recipe.....
Here's the real deal though....
Boneless, skinless chicken thighs
don't exactly have a ton of meat on them.
You is gonna have to eat possibly three of these to fill up.
Just so you know....
So here's the fixins for these tasty morsels...
mix up the chopped garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Add in the brown sugar, dijon mustard and
red pepper flakes....
...this sauce smells ah-mazing by the way!!
Salt and pepper these thighs up....
Now drizzle that deee-licious baking sauce over these thighs....
And throw them in a baking dish and into the oven!
meat thermometer reads
BE JUICY, DONE BUT MOIST!
Hello fully cooked boneless,
Tent these up with aluminum foil to keep the heat in and the chicken tender!
take the aluminum foil off after a few minutes
and begin drooling.
Plate up these thighs with a nice,
big fresh salad!
Psssst.....c'mere.....even with that big salad, I still needed TWO chicken thighs to fill me up.
These thighs are so moist and tasty but they are small.
Tim says the flavor is not evident immediately,
he said the flavor comes in the back door on every bite.
I have to agree with him, the flavor is subtle yet layered.
Savory, tangy, tasty, with just a tad bit of sweetness going on.
I will definitely be making this Chicken Thigh recipe often...even for company.

Okay, so if you're from Iowa,
you know we've been having one rain day after another! Here's a few shots taken after yet another rain last week.....
Dark, stormy clouds still to the south....
After that particular shot of rain, the clouds weren't
moving away too fast ....
And yet the bikes against the barn look like they're ready to be ridden any time now....just bring your Mary Poppins umbrella :)
New sidewalk finally poured and getting wet, the rain just keeps-a-comin'...
And dusk-time settles
on the old 8 ft garden gate
hanging out at the side of the garage....
Okay folks, gots to go for now.
Am going to attempt a Double Crust Marion Blackberry Crisp today.
I think that's called "baking" and we all know how I feel about baking.
This recipe only has 7 ingredients so I can't possibly
screw it up, right?
7 ingredients. Pshhhhh. Simple.
Talk at ya soon :)
