Last week I logged 3 runs, and kept my eating on par…well, until the weekend where I chowed down on chicken wings while watching the World Cup soccer game…ooooooops…
I started my week strong with my hubby, running a very humid and hot 5k to get us moving. It was hard, admittedly. There were plenty of swear words and more sweat then we could even quantify, but we kept moving…
Back to work today, and let’s just say at 9 pm I have finally finished my work day. Talk about exhausted…who wants to lift weights for me?
BUT…I’ve missed cooking. With the hubby gone last week our meals here were pretty simple…
Yet the best part of tonight was creating a yummy and healthy dinner and in less than 30 minutes. Now…what to name this dish, LOL.
Braised chicken thighs
Here is what you’ll need:
4 chicken thighs, bone in, patted dry.
1 small white onion diced
1 pepper diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can of diced tomatoes, drained
2 teaspoons of capers, diced
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
1 cup of Sauvignon blanc (Fiddlehead cellar is my all time favorite)
Pinch of Rosemary, sage, thyme, kosher salt, black pepper and roasted red pepper flakes
Here’s what you’ll do:
Season your chicken with salt and pepper and sear on both sides in a pan coated with extra virgin olive oil, until they are golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside. (Do NOT cook through). In the same pan, add your onions, garlic, peppers, tomatoes, tomato paste, capers, wine, and seasoning and let simmer for 5 minutes. Add back your chicken, coating them in the sauce, and cover. Let simmer for 15 minutes until cooked through.
Instead of serving over traditional pasta, I served over yellow zucchini noodles. What a hit!
How did I make these cool veggie noodles? My new favorite kitchen gadget!
Back at it with running tomorrow!

I love the spiralizer. I have a bigger one but love that you can take this with you anywhere… but what’s with the name? lol.
I know lol. The name is terrible. Hahaha
That looks so good. And under 30 mins to make it?? That’s definitely a winner.
Thanks Char!! I’m always about quick and healthy meals during the week!!
