I knew I wanted to have chicken today but wasn’t sure exactly what to have with it.
Looking in the refrigerator, I noticed some leftover cauliflower from last week’s meal along with broccoli and mushrooms. Â Hmmm … I thought. Â That’s a nice combination.
Taking the veggies out of the refrigerator, I rinsed them with cold water and cut them up into bite sized pieces.
The now defrosted bone-in skin-on chicken thighs sat waiting to be prepared.
I wanted this paleo Baked Chicken with Broccoli & Cauliflower recipe to be simple and easy so I decided to use only a few items to prepare it: Â white pepper, onion powder, salt and toasted sesame seeds. Â I tossed a little of each over the chicken thighs.
To give this meal a little flavor, I used toasted sesame oil to toss the veggies in ~ just enough to make them glisten.
I added the prepared chicken to a greased casserole dish then arranged the veggies around it.
One thing I noticed while preparing the chicken is that one of the pieces was a lot smaller than the other three. Â That’s important because it means they will bake differently, i.e., the small one will be very well done. Â Oh well, I won’t worry about it.
I used the convection baking setting on my oven to bake this casserole. Â If you decide to make this recipe and use the regular baking setting, just know that it will take a little longer so you’ll have to check on it periodically Â (I usually poke a chopstick in the chicken to see if blood comes out ~ no blood means it’s ready.)
Alright then, enough of my chatting here. Â Ready to see this recipe?
