Foodie Friday: Lemon Thyme Chicken Thighs, Twice Baked Potatoes

Pin It! This is a two part chicken dish but don't worry it's still super simple! The lemony rub with herbs and seasonings is so good and would probably work really well on the bbq as well. This recipe starts with a quick pan roast just to get the chicken nice and crispy before you finish cooking it in the oven for about 20 minutes.
Ingredients :
8 skin on chicken thighs

Lemon Rub
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon zest
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp sea salt

1 1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tsp lemon zest

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2.Mix all of the lemon rub ingredients together in a bowl
3.Rub the mixture onto each chicken thigh
4. Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet and place chicken skin side down cook for about 2-3 minutes or until skin is crispy. Flip chicken and cook for another 2-3 minutes
5.In another bowl whisk together chicken broth, lemon juice, and lemon zest and set aside
6. Add broth mixture to the pan and place in oven to continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through  about 20-30 minutes

Pin It!  These twice baked potatoes are an adaptation of the loaded mashed potatoes that I make. I try to bake the potatoes ahead of time so that I don't have to wait for them to cool before I can prepare them. Throw them in the oven during the day, take 'em out and let 'em cool so they are ready to go when you want to start scooping and stuffing them in prep for the second bake .
8 Russett potatoes
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup chopped chives
1/2 cup shredded  cheddar cheese
2 tsp salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

1. wash potatoes thoroughly and wrap in foil. puncture a few times to allow steam to leave the potatoes
2. cook in 375 degree oven for about an hour or until soft when squeezed
3. Allow potatoes to cook then cut in half length wise
4. scoop out the middle of the potatoes leaving about a 1/4 inch border of potato all the way around 
5. scoop the middles into a large bowl and add all other ingredients to the potatoes and whip together
6. refill the potatoes with your loaded mash mixture and bake for 25 min at 375
