This past week has been a busy week of packing, unpacking, moving and driving.  I have got a lot done in finalizing my move from San Antonio to Austin, and it’s been tough work, but exciting as well. My apartment is pretty bare right now, the only furniture left is the air mattress I’m sleeping on, which is pretty uncomfortable.  In moving everything, I didn’t have a lot of gear left in my kitchen to cook with.  I did however have a roasting pan in which I cooked these chicken thighs in! And they tasted awesome! I usually buy a pack of ten chicken thighs (about 4-5lbs), they’re cheap, and make for a lot of good leftovers. But I did half the recipe for those that don’t want that many thighs.  So if you have more, just double the recipe!
