Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

As a kid, I hated mushrooms. Sure, it was a texture thing, but they also just looked gross to me. They weren’t a pretty colorful veggie like carrotsĀ or bell peppers. They were dull and dirt covered. Anyway, mushrooms and me were never pals until switched to a vegan diet my Freshman year of college. I was hit quite quickly with the realization that the majority of vegan menu options had mushrooms…bummer. Lots of mushroom sandwiches and pastas. So, it was then that I decided to give mushrooms another chance. The verdict: I am so happy that I did because now I love ’em! Moral of the story: some things/ people deserve a second chance.

Roasted BBQ Chicken Thighs

This morning I woke up ready to conquer the day. I did an hour of blogilates (thanks Cassie!), got ready, and even ate breakfast at home. I’m usually more of a quick smoothie in a travel mug kind of girl. Then, I get to work and I realize…. I totally forgot to put the chicken in the crock pot. How did I forget to put the chicken in the crock pot?! It was going to be a delicious bbq pulled chicken on a sandwich thin with some crunchy, refreshing broccoli slaw. The chicken thighs would cook all day until they were falling apart, but they never made it to their slow cooker destination. So, on to plan b. Roasting! Roasting veggies, meat, anything really is one of my all time favorite cooking methods. Crank the oven to 425, season, pop the chicken thighs in, flip halfway through and you are done. Low maintenance, just like my no heat curls today.
