Great looking meal.

We got a package of boneless, skinless chicken thighs by accident doing grocery pickup. I couldn't decide what to do with them so I banished them to the deep freeze. Now I have a plan on what to do with them. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Eddie. Give it a try and let me know how you like it...

Man nice meal! I’d say hard to beat thighs in a creamy shroom sauce. I always loved beets growing up. I’ve not used beetroot before, does it taste like beets?

The roots were coated with EVOO, course salt & cracked pepper, and roasted in a 450℉ oven until tender and slightly browned on the edges. The stems were sautéed in EVOO until tender then the greens were added until they wilted. Seasoned with course salt & cracked pepper...

Those who were here raved about the chicken and sauce. Some were not thrilled with the beets, but my wife, myself, and her mother love them. These were really fresh and looked fantastic so...
WOW!! Great looking dish. I love beets but have never used the stem but I will next time around.

Thank you, Jeff. Fresh beets don't taste like the canned ones I grew up being served. To me, they're kind of sweet...

Thank you. I usually toss the stems and leaves, but these looked so good that I just had to cook them and they were good...
