Simmering Summer Recipes

Today the temperature did not exceed 100 degrees for the first time in a week, so I celebrated by being creative in the kitchen with some chicken!I started with a little extra virgin olive oil, onion and chopped green chiles
then added the sauce; which includes ketchup, coke, oregano, garlic powder, lemon juice, salt and pepper. I brought this to a boil for one minute
Then I added boneless chicken thighs and let them simmer for 20 minutes covered and then 40 minutes uncovered.
Served with Cal's mashed potatoes and steamed squash from Uncle Jerry's garden...so yummy!
