Ten Minute Chipotle Chicken Thighs




Here is a quick little number that is close to my heart. I love boneless chicken thighs, mini meatballs, aioli, feta and chipotle. Combine them all in one dish and you’re golden!

And with that, we’re off to Vegas for a Christmas Shindig with Paleo Pam, Sister Kate, and Cunado Dale.

I’ll bring the camera along to see if we can’t drop in on Billy Howard and make a meal with what we find stocked in his kitchen… Sheena, I hope your house is clean 🙂

Until next time…
