Chicken and Onions baked with Rosemary, Toasted Crumbs and Parmesan Cheese

When you walk into your pantry, could you make a meal from the ingredients on hand? If you can, you have a well-stocked pantry. Our own well-stocked pantry is how Chicken and Onions baked with Rosemary, Toasted Crumbs and Parmesan Cheese came to be! A simple to make, delicious dinner to enjoy, entirely from what you have on hand... 

Often when we cook, the ingredients are the recipe. 

I have come to learn with my interest in food history, that this was exactly how food was cooked in previous years. Recipes were based on what you held in your pantry. Those same recipes would have also taken into account what had been harvested from the garden, as well as what was gathered while out foraging. 

We are a little more modern than that at our little corner of the world, but we do have a very large root cellar, some fruit trees, and a large freezer. All of these are my "pantry". What we have on hand, is what is made into the food we eat throughout the day and of course for dinner. 

While this recipe of Chicken and Onions baked with Rosemary, Toasted Crumbs and Parmesan Cheese is far from gourmet, it is very, very good! We will enjoy it again because cooking from the pantry is pretty standard around here. I have found that adhering to a policy of cooking with what we have on hand has many benefits. I am challenged (in a good way!) to be more creative, plus we actually waste less, and we eat healthier in the process. 

Chicken and Onions baked with Rosemary, Toasted Crumbs, and Parmesan Cheese is one of those recipes where the end results are far greater than the sum of its parts! I hope you give it a try or use it as a starting point for your own journey of cooking with what you have. Why not take a chance, life can be delicious! 

PS, this dish is rounded out with sweet potatoes baked in their own jackets. Add a little butter, maybe some brown sugar for those that like their sweet potatoes on the sweet side, and dinner is served!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • chicken thighs
