Fried Chicken with Broccoli and Butter



lbs boneless chicken thighs

5 oz. butter

1 lb broccoli

½ leek

1 teaspoon garlic powder

salt and pepper


Fry the chicken in butter, over medium-high heat for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on how thick the pieces are. Season generously with salt and pepper.

Make sure the chicken is thoroughly cooked through. Lower the heat and let cook for another minute if you are unsure.

Remove from pan and keep warm under aluminum foil or on low heat in the oven.

Rinse and trim the broccoli, including the stem. Chop into bite-sized pieces. Rinse the leek, being careful to remove sandy deposits between layers. Coarsely chop the leek.

Fry the vegetables over medium heat in the same skillet as the chicken. Add more butter and garlic powder and stir. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve the chicken and vegetables with an extra dollop of butter melting on top.
