Chicken Recipe

chicken recipe dr martha castro noriega tijuana

Skinless, boneless chicken thighs are meatier, quicker to cook, and surprisingly healthier than you might think. They’re also budget-friendly and less expensive than breasts. It definitely saves you money and adds a delicious flavor to your meal.

Chicken thighs are the most delicious alternative. Marinate them so they can soak up flavor, grill for a smoky crispness, or coat in crumbs and pan fry for a lighter “fried” chicken. 


1 1/2 lb. yellow new potatoes (about 25)

Kosher salt and pepper

medium chicken thighs

2 tsp. Dijon mustard

2 tbsp. olive oil

2 tbsp. white wine vinegar

1 tbsp. prepared horseradish

scallions, finely chopped

1 tbsp. tarragon, chopped

small radishes, thinly sliced

1/4 c. flat-leaf parsley, chopped

  1. Place potatoes in a large pot. Add enough cold water to cover, then bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain and run under cold water to cool.
  2. While potatoes are cooking, season chicken with ¼ tsp each salt and pepper and place in a large, heavy skillet, skin side down. Brush with mustard and place a piece of foil on top. Place a second skillet on top of the chicken and put heavy cans in a skillet (the contents won’t cook) to weigh it down (this will flatten the chicken so it cooks up evenly and extra-crisp). Cook on medium until skin is deep brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Flip chicken and cook, uncovered until cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and horseradish; stir in scallions and tarragon. Halve potatoes (or quarter if large); toss with vinaigrette, then radishes.
  4. Fold parsley into potato salad and serve with chicken.

Spring Brings Butterflies And Flowers

Today is the second day of Spring 2022, but many places in the world still show majestic blankets of snow.  And that is because the traditional start of spring is governed primarily by hours of daylight, not the weather. And the traditional start of spring is, essentially, Groundhog Day, even back in history before that furry prognosticator’s tradition was coined.

Although it is hard to feel like spring has begun in some sub-zero temperatures places, the length of day drives a change in weather, and together both drive plants to come out of dormancy.

In southern California From January 1 to January 31 the sun rose a little earlier each day, rising about 8 minutes earlier at the end of the month than at the beginning. From February 1 to February 28, the sun rose about 37 minutes earlier. In March, from the start of the month to the end, the sun will rise an extra 40 minutes earlier.

March 20, the Mid-Spring Equinox, marks the point at which the lengthening days have finally caught up with the waning darkness, and daylight and nighttime are of equal length.

The daffodil (narcissus bublocodum) is the traditional flower of hope and spring as it drives up through the snow in response to the lengthening days of February and March.

Workation Fabulous Idea: New Zealand A Real Paradise!

New Zealand is a small country, similar in size to Great Britain or Japan. With a population of only four million people, it’s also gloriously uncrowded.

It is made up of two main islands and numerous smaller ones. Around three-quarters of the population lives on the North Island, which is also home to the capital, Wellington.

Agriculture is the economic mainstay, but manufacturing and tourism are important. Visitors are drawn to the glacier-carved mountains, lakes, beaches, and thermal springs. Because of the islands’ geographical isolation, much of the flora and fauna are unique to the country.
