Inspiration struck again.  So many recipes so little time.  I like complete meal ideas…makes it a little easier for me to pull together a meal quickly when time is short. This one takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Adapted from Everyday Food

Crispy Lime Ginger Chicken Thighs

1 tbsp grated ginger, peeled & grated
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp curry powder
4 green onions, sliced thin
Salt & Pepper
6-8 bone in chicken thighs
Cooking Spray (Pam)
Toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Turn oven/broiler on. Ensure your top rack is approximately 4 inches from top heating element.

In a small bowl combine ginger, lime juice, curry powder, green onions, salt and pepper. Mix to form a paste.

Season your chicken with salt & pepper and place on a rimmed, sprayed baking sheet. Gently loosen skin from each piece. Dividing evenly, rub lime ginger mixture under skin.

Place thighs skin side down on baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes. Flip thighs and continue to broil/bake until skin is crisp approximately 8 minutes more. If you have an instant read thermometer it should read 165F when inserted into thickest part of chicken.

Serve drizzled with pan juices, toasted sesame seeds and Couscous with Carrots & Cilantro.
