Perfect chicken!

   You probably wonder what makes this chicken dish perfect, don't you? Well three things: it's super tender, super delicious, and it couldn't be easier to make! I'm not sure, but I think this is one of  the first "real" dishes I created. I remember I would make it all the time for my friends whenever they were coming over for dinner. By now I evolved a little (just a bit!) and serve much more versatile dishes, but I still love this one and come back to it once in a while. It's also one of my "safe" dishes, so I make it if I have some new people over and I am not sure what their culinary preferences are. It's very simple, but delicious, and everybody loves it. Six ingredients is all it takes! I used to made it with five... but recently I added a fresh herb (whatever is in season) and bumped it up to six ingredients! It's a real feast, check this out:

*  skinless chicken thighs
*  1 large onions (sliced)
*  3 garlic cloves (chopped)
*  1 tbsp rosemary
*  2 tbsp olive oil
*  salt and pepper

1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.
2. In a dutch oven, heat the olive oil and brown chicken for about 5 minutes on each side.
3. Cover with sliced onions, garlic, and rosemary. Add water (or chicken broth) to almost cover the chicken, bring to boil, put the lid on and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.

   I told you it was easy, and it's such a yummy dish. So flavorful, so tender, it just melts in your mouth, and you don't even need teeth, but I definitely don't recommend teethless entertaining, it might scare some of your fellow diners. This dish has a special place in my heart and other than adding different herbs I never change it. It's just perfect as it is!
