With only 3 days left for Christmas, everyone is running here and there to get the last minute presents, right? I have found myself a couple of years going shopping the same Christmas Eve. I know, I am a pro in that procrastination thing. This year, however, we’re skipping the Christmas shopping for budget purposes, and since the only family that I have here are my in-laws, the holidays are going to be presents-stress-free.

Today I’m coming to share a recipe. It’s been a while since I wrote one (where is that December Goal?).
As we’re not fans of turkey in my house, I was looking for some new recipes of oven roasted chicken and I found this one. Needless to say it was very tasty and it didn’t last long. I always love the smell coming out of the oven when you’re cooking something. It is best way to get the appetite coming, right? And when guests are coming in and you start receiving compliments it feels pretty good. Who doesn’t like to receive compliments?
This is the list of ingredients that you will need:
Start by covering the bottom of the tray with oil and salt. Peel and cut the potatoes and the onions and place them in the tray. Put a little more oil, salt and the chosen spices on top of the onions and potatoes.
Turn the oven up to 350ºF.
Clean with water one of the oranges, slice it and place it on top of the potatoes and onions. Use the second orange to extract the juice.
Place the chicken thighs, put a little more oil, salt and spices.
Pour the beer and the orange juice in between the potatoes.
Cook for about 45-60 minutes, until the potatoes have a golden color and the chicken looks crispy.
Remember to always cook the chicken with the skin, even if you don’t like to eat it. Otherwise the meat will dry out during the process.
