Roasted Goldenberry Chutney Over Spiced Chicken Thighs #SpringOnThePlate #MelissasProduce #Sponsored

Yellow, sunny dishes have been on my mind - and on my table - since I received a selection of yellow produce from Melissa's Produce*. You can read a little bit more about this #SpringOnThePlate series in an recipe post: Earl Grey Layer Cake with Bergamot Curd.

One of the items I received was goldenberries; you read more about those on their website. Also called cape gooseberries or ground cherries, they are bright, orange-colored fruits that are closely related to the tomatillo. Like tomatillos, they are shrouded in a papery husk called a calyx that must be removed before eating. Slightly smaller than cherry tomatoes, their flavor is reminiscent of the sweet-tart of pineapple and other tropical fruits.

I decided to make an easy oven-roasted chutney to put over chicken.  Chutneys are one of my favorite condiments. I love that pop of sweet and tart that it adds to everything from charcuterie boards to roasted meats. This was a great sheetpan meal that was ready in about an hour.

Ingredients serves 4

  • 1 C goldenberries, husked and halved
  • 1 t olive oil
  • 1 organic white onion, peeled and diced, approximately 1 C
  • 1 C red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 t freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 t organic dark brown sugar
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1 t smoked paprika
  • 1/2 t ground coriander
  • 1/2 t ground ginger
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • Also needed: oven-proof skillet or baking dish

Sheetpan Chicken Thighs
  • 4 to 6 bone-in chicken thighs
  • 1 organic onion, peeled and thickly sliced
  • 2 organic delicata squash, deseeded and thickly sliced
  • 2 to 3 T olive oil, if needed
  • 1 t ground cumin
  • 1 t smoked paprika
  • 1/2 t ground coriander
  • 1/2 t ground ginger
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 organic lemon, thinly sliced

Preheat an oven to 400°F.

Combine the goldenberries, olive oil, onion, red bell pepper, lemon juice, brown sugar, and spices. Stir to coat, then spread evenly in your baking dish or oven-proof skillet.

Place in the oven and roast for 15 to 20 minutes the fruit should be cooked and the onions softened. Set aside.

Sheetpan Chicken Thighs
Preheat oven to 400°F - or your oven is probably still at temperature from the chutney. Line a sheetpan with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.

Place the chicken in a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with the spices. Drizzle with 1 T olive oil and toss to coat.

Turn the chicken onto the prepared sheetpan and arrange the onion, delicata slices, and lemon slices around them so that everything is in a single layer and is nothing on top or underneath any thing else. Drizzle the entire pan with 2 T more olive oil. Place sheetpan in the oven and roast for 30 minutes. The chicken should be cooked through. Spoon the chutney over the top of the thighs and return the pan to the oven for an additional 5 to 10 minutes.

Turn up the oven to broil for 3 minutes to crisp the top of the chicken and veggies, if desired. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve hot.

I served this on a bed of polenta. Ladle cooked polenta into individual serving bowls. Place roasted chicken thigh to one side and roasted veggies on the other. Spoon the roasted chutney over the top and serve hot.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
