Cilantro Chicken

Cilantro chicken! It’s super easy and very flavorful! It’s another smacker!


4 chicken thighs
2 T butter
2 T olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1 C chopped onion
3 cloves garlic minced
1 large bunch cilantro with large stems removed, smaller ones are okay
4 C chicken stock
2 C chopped vegetables (carrots, potatoes, peas)
Salt and pepper to taste


Peel and chop onion and garlic. Set aside.

Wash and dry the cilantro. Remove large stem pieces. Set aside.

Melt butter with oil in large pot over medium heat. Add chopped onion and garlic to sauce pan. Cook over medium-low heat until soft and translucent.

Add chicken,  cumin, chicken stock, and cilantro. Bring to a light boil. Turn down heat and simmer until chicken is almost done.

While chicken is cooking, peel potatoes and cut into wedges. Wash carrots well and slice into ¼” slices.

After chicken has been cooking for about 15-20 minutes, add the vegetables to the pot. Simmer until all is done.

Add salt and pepper to taste. I personally do not like pepper in this dish.

Remove from heat when chicken and vegetables are done.

Server over rice. Garnish with fresh cilantro and a squish of fresh lime.

Sometimes I cook this dish where the only vegetable I add is green peas.

Enjoy! I certainly did!
