Crispy Chicken Thighs

After a month of being away from home, it sure feels nice to be back in my kitchen cooking!

Last night I made my boyfriend and I a meal that he says was “the best chicken I’ve ever made”. When I make something this good, I have a hard time not sharing it with you! But before we get to the recipe, can we talk about something I love even more than this chicken!?

Suits.

Last night was the season premiere of season 6 of my all time favourite TV series, Suits. To give you an idea of just how much I love this series, you should know I haven’t even made it through Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones – I’m just not interested in TV that much. In fact, we don’t even have cable, so I really am not a TV-watching-girl. But put some good looking dudes in suits and you’ve got me hooked! I binge watched the entire first season in a day.

In other words, last night was “date night” in our house, dinner and the newest episode of Suits, which is why I made this fancy chicken dinner for my guy and I…

… because if the new episode of Suits wasn’t making him excited, I knew this chicken would!
