Thai Chicken

By

This recipe calls for thighs, but we busted out the boneless/skinless and it still made my husband exclaim, "What. IS. This." like I'd discovered a new continent.
Yes. His reaction was that epic.

Preparation

Step 1

Per the goddess of Nom Nom Paleo, the instructions are as easy as two steps (unless you count pre-heating the oven.)

Dump everything except for the chicken into a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth. Then, bake the bird parts for 40 minutes at 400°F.

*If you're using boneless/skinless chicken boobs, bake that bird for 30 minutes instead.

The end!
