One pot chicken and potatoes

Molars are the bane of our existence right now and I needed something quick and easy for dinner.

One pot chicken and potatoes

  • Chicken thighs (6)
  • Potatoes – sliced thin (1.5-2 cups)
  • Garlic – slivered (3 cloves)
  • Sunflower seed oil (2 tbsp)
  • Salt (pinch to taste)
  • Water (1/4-1/2 cup)

In medium saucepan, sautee the garlic quickly then add chicken and potatoes and salt. Cook for a few minutes to lightly brown chicken then flip. Add water and cover. Cook on medium-low for 20-30 minutes until chicken is done and potatoes are soft.

It was a big hit with little man. He likes chicken, especially the fatty thighs, and the potatoes end up very tender and flavorful. He got his with a small avocado and I had leftover rice and sauteed carrots and greens.

Quinoa crackers

Having a toddler with food intolerances is especially hard on them when they go to playgroup and can’t eat the food other kids have. We’re still in the process of introducing foods including grains and have already figured out that little man can’t eat gluten directly so I have been experimenting with different flours and recipes. Today, given that he’s cutting molars and wants to chew on everything, I am attempting quinoa crackers from this recipe.

It’s an easy recipe – though I found the dough was very sticky. I might have had too much water because the originals didn’t look as wet. I swapped the coconut oil for sunflower seed oil.

They are in the oven baking so we’ll see how they turn out!

Update: they are done. Not too bad though a little bitter because of the quinoa. Maybe a smidge of honey next time. Little man likes them!

Finally migrating my blog!

Three years, a baby, and an international move later I am finally actually migrating my blog. Sadly, I accidentally didn’t migrate the old one properly and will need to manually add in the old sewing posts. So that may take a while – I mentioned the toddler, yes?

Unlike the old blog, I will also have my experiments in cooking and baking while dairy, soy, legumes, and gluten free. Luckily, the toddler loves most food when not cutting molars (please come through soon!). Let the adventures begin!
