Yield
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 chicken thigh and about 1 cup potato salad)

Sneak another veg into the potatoes with our green dressing that has peas and spinach. This recipe's a time-saver, too: A quick sear and a sprinkle of panko cuts prep and cook time in half compared to breading and baking. Serve with Chili-Lime Corn.

 

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Rub chicken thighs with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise; sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken, skin side down, to pan; cook 3 minutes. Turn; top evenly with panko and 1 teaspoon thyme. Place pan in oven. Bake at 400°F for 12 minutes or until chicken is done.

Step 3

Place potatoes in a sauce­pan filled with water. Bring to a boil; cook 8 minutes or until tender. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Return water to a boil. Add peas; cook 2 minutes. Add spinach; cook 30 seconds. Drain; rinse under cold water. Drain.

Step 4

Place remaining 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, two-thirds of spinach mixture, vinegar, and garlic in a food processor; process until smooth. Add remaining 1 teaspoon thyme, remaining one-third of spinach mixture, and mayonnaise mixture to potatoes; toss. Serve with chicken thighs.

We enjoyed the potato salad that went with the chicken. It was delicious, and packed in the veggies. The kids (ages 10 and 14) enjoyed it as well.
