Lemon Thyme Chicken & Mashed Squash instructions
- In a large bowl, mix together the thighs, mashed garlic cloves, the zest, a tbsp of olive oil, thyme, oregano, salt and the pepper. Allow it to marinate for 30mins in the fridge.
- Pour the left over tbsp of olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet, or if you don't have an oven safe one, a regular skillet is fine :).
- Place the thighs skin side down on the pan and allow it to cook for about 5-6mins. Don't flip the chicken before that, the skin will get a nice golden brown.
- Flip the chicken over and add the sliced lemon and allow it to cook for another 7-8mins.
- If your skillet is oven safe, place it straight in the oven – if not transfer the thighs and everything else into a oven safe dish and allow it to roast for another 20mins.
- Two options to cook the squash:.
- A) Chop the squash into small cubes, toss together with some olive oil, salt and pepper and then place on a baking tray evenly (don't dump it on the tray!) along with the garlic cloves and roast at 200C. 15mins into the baking, add the thyme and continue baking.
- B) Boil the squash and garlic in a pot of boiling water.
- Whichever option you go with, once its cooked, mash the squash and the garlic together to your desired consistency. I put it in the food processor for a quick even mash so the two year won't complain that it wasn't smooth.
- While its hot, add the butter, milk and mascarpone and season with the salt and pepper and give it all a good stir. If you have boiled the squash, add the thyme along with these ingredients.
- If there isn't mascarpone available where you live, use sour cream, it works fine.
- When its ready to serve, put some mash on a plate and then the chicken right on top. A salad, some garlic bread will make this complete and will definitely leave everyone extremely satisfied.
