Chicken with Roasted Rhubarb Sauce
I've never made gravy because I find it too intimidating... but this dish makes it's own delicious rhubarb "gravy" without even trying! It's amazing. This is exactly the kind of simple recipe with very few ingredients that I'm always on the lookout for.
I made this for our roommate dinner. So PREVIOUS ROOMMATES (Michelle, Nick, Britt): check out what you're missing. Aren't you glad you abandoned me for Vietnam/Philly/DC.
Chicken with Roasted Rhubarb Gravy
Adapted from Cooking Books
8 chicken thighs, skin on, bone in (fyi: the family pack at Whole Foods is surprisingly affordable)
3-5 stalks rhubarb, chopped (remember the leaves are poisonous)
1 tsp sugar
Preheat the oven to 400. Arrange the chicken thighs skin side up in an ungreased baking dish. Lightly sprinkle with salt. That's all! Cook for 30 minutes.
Chop the rhubarb and mix it with the teaspoon of sugar. Let it sit.
After 30 minutes, add in the rhubarb, fitting it around the chicken in the pan. Put it back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
All done! Serve the chicken and spoon on the sauce. Prepare to be amazed.
Another very simple but delicious meal to add onto this post:
Toast or bagel
Smash an avocado onto toast or a bagel. Lightly salt and top with hot sauce. It's nothing new, but I always forget how good it is!
