Spicy Chicken Thighs with Blue Cheese Mashers and Court Case Follie

The court case has gone well and now I can relax, except for trying to collect the judgement on our tree damage.

I now hope to explain the underlying gist.

We are now proud owners of another 1.1899 acres. When I found out who it was cutting our trees and it was because the person still owned the 1.1899 acres , I flipped.

We had purchased bank forclosed property and this guy still owned acres next to ours!

How was it possible?

Fifteen years in the making, the county officials had all changed and we had to dig into fifteen years of court documents, but guess what! The guy had falsified some documents and held onto land that the bank should have foreclosed on and should have gone with our acreage.

Anyway I can now relax on the subject. It is over and he didn’t appeal. Of course with all the documents we had against him it would have been foolish to try and appeal.

I never saw such a mess. Now I have to try and collect our money, and I am not using that expensive attorney. I will try and do it myself because I used to do some collections many years back, although I will need a refresher course.

The land was really the main feature and I am glad we now possess it. Thank you Lord for your grace in this matter and bringing it to light.

So…How can a person eat healthy with all that trash going on?
Spicy Chicken Thighs with Blue Cheese Mashers, thats how.

I really do love this and you don’t have to eat the chicken skin although it does give the chicken a better roasted flavor to leave it on during the roasting.

I often use the dressing for the Mashers for a lower calorie Blue Cheese Salad Dressing. I just add a bit of nonfat buttermilk to thin it a bit for a salad dressing and it also makes a great dip for the chicken.

Spicy Chicken Thighs – 4 servings 332 calories

1 1/2 pounds chicken thighs
1 serving olive oil spray — per thigh
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup marinara sauce — home made or your favorite
2 tablespoons tabasco sauce
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup chopped parsley

Spray the chicken thighs with the olive oil spray and sprinkle with garlic salt, salt, and pepper.

Place skin side up in a baking pan and roast at 400 degrees 30 minutes.

Place your sauce ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.

Prepare another pan by spooning some of the sauce in the bottom. Remove the baked chicken pieces, discarding juices, and place skin side up in the pan with the sauce. Brush remaining sauce over chicken and place back in the 400 degree oven about 20-25 minutes until browned and juices run clear.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve with Blue Cheese Mashers.

Mix together all dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Boil your potatoes and drain well. Mash with the cream in a separate bowl and then add 1/2 of the dressing mix. Save the other half for a dipping sauce for the Spicy Chicken Thighs.

    This was an exciting post–the outcome of your land mess and the recipe. I am delighted with both. I do think the good Lord had his hand in your business and praise God He did. Our prayers will continue for the settlement. And that recipe looks really delicious! Jancd
