Chicken In The Pot - Quick And Easy Meal

A few of you have asked for quick and easy meals for families on the go...that are healthy. One of our favorite quick and easy go to meals - especially when it's cold outside is Chicken In The Pot.  You can make this from start to finish in about 35 minutes and it's pretty much a home run.

Start off with a large pack of skinless chicken thighs.....
 chicken broth, carrots, a large onion and celery.
Put a a cup of flour and some salt and pepper in a ziplock back and toss your thighs so they are coated with flour.
 Brown the thighs in a large skillet with a little oil of your choice.  I use about 2 tbsp of olive oil.
Chop up the onion and celery and add the bag of carrots (don't worry about cutting the carrots) to the skillet. Add enough broth to almost cover the tops of the thighs.  Bring to a boil and stir from the bottom as the flour will begin to thicken your stock.  Once this boils, cover and simmer for about 25 minutes.  Stir every now and then and if you need to add more stock you can.  Add salt and pepper to your liking. 
Serve over rice with a salad and hot rolls.  YUM!

This is definite comfort food.  My whole family loves this dish and it couldn't be any easier to make.
