Ok since you like the idea of skillet thighs, you can throw a small amount of Salsa, or pizza sauce, or cream of something soup on the top and proceed to finish.

Chili over brown rice and corn bread.

This is my go-to for chicken thighs. You can use any seasoning blend you like. Super easy and so tasty

And it takes advantage of the oven being on for your tater

Z...grilling those thighs would be my first choice too, but I'm not up in the cold north.

If you want simple and tasty, you could just roast them since you'll already have the oven on for your twice baked potato. Season the thighs with salt and pepper, a little garlic powder and onion powder, or some lemon pepper.

Put them in a preheated 400 degree oven and roast for 45 minutes or so, depending upon how big and meaty they are. Baste with the hot pan juices a couple of times while roasting them. Easy peasy, and so good.

All right we're getting there.

I do have cream of mushroom soup.

So far dinner tonight is.
Twice baked taters with butter, S&P, Parm cheese and Chives.
Browned Chicken Thighs simmered in cream of mushroom sauce.

Anything else?

This is my plan for tonight's dinner. I have a couple of French rolls left from last week, so I think I'll make garlicky herbed croutons for the stew.

Welllllllll, I always have to have something green. (Mama said so).
A little salad works, if nothing else.

If you're going to go with the COM soup, try adding a tablespoon of Dijon mustard to it. Gives it a nice tang.

I almost always have salad fixings and frozen green beans on hand, so I would choose one of those.

Yes, Z, definitely something green. Do you have any green beans in your pantry?

------------------------
Tonight's dinner for me will be a loaded up salad again. I can't seem to get enough salads these days - plus, I have a ton of produce to use up.

GG, looks like we've been on the same wave length on this thread a couple of times now.
