When Pineapple and Sweet Baby Ray’s meet on chicken thighs magic happens..
😮 Chicken becomes dessert..
I’m a huge fan of boneless, skinless chicken thighs.. Flavorful and versatile..
So last night I wanted something new and tasty.. So, I laid the thighs in the baking pan flat, removed all tags of fat attached, put a few squirts of Sweet Baby Ray’s Original BBQ sauce in and smeared it on all sides of the chicken..
I think my fingerpainting on the sides is great “Pan art” 😂
Next I took a single serve cup of pineapple tidbits and drained the juice and placed 5 tidbits on each thigh then rolled the thighs and very lightly sprinkled with nutmeg on top.. Then I drank the pineapple juice..
Put the pan in preheated oven at 425f and baked for 15 mins then turned temp down to 350f for another 30 mins..
With just 4 ingredients, its a snap to toss together.. And my hands being the only mess 😁 it was ready in under an hour with only one pan to wash up..
This was tender and full of sweet chicken flavor.. I also ate it cold this morning and was surprised how good it is cold too..
The nutmeg is important to the flavor.. But truly, use it sparingly, it’s a strong flavor and could ruin your meal if you use too much.. With a light sprinkle it can elevate a dish to tastebud heaven..
