I had to try it ASAP and at the same time I had to make sure no matter what it would be edible :-), so I chose a very easy and flavorful recipe:
“Roasted chicken with thyme”

4 chicken tights
3 tbsp olive oil
2 lbs redskin potatoes
8 oz bella mushrooms
1 cup chopped scallions
6 baby carrots
2 tsp fresh thyme
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp paprika

1.Preheat your cast iron skillet gradually over low to medium heat. Wash and pat dry the chicken tights. Fry the chicken in the olive oil until golden on top.
Sprinkle the sea salt, black pepper and then add the scallions. Stir gradually and preheat the oven at 375 F.
