Want to my newest obsession? Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix. I told myself that I would not binge watch all of the episodes but I totally failed after 3 days. Even my husband tried to slow me down but I couldn’t be stopped. I’m the worst.

Plus the theme song keeps getting stuck in my head so I walk around the house signing it at the top of the lungs. I’m pretty sure my husband thinks I’m even crazier than normal. Which is pretty hard to beat since I’m pretty much just a giant ball of weird.

One of my other obsessions is chicken thighs. I swear I cannot get enough of their deliciousness. I know I have talked about my love of chicken thighs before but their amazingness keeps growing on me. It always stays tender and I honestly do think the flavor kick the butt out of boneless skinless chicken breast.

Sorry breasts. You’re out. Well, unless your used in sandwiches…or fried…or smothered in cheese.

Ok, so I love them both BUT thighs are still my favorite.

I guess this means if I were a man I would be a leg man over a boob man? Wait..am I even allowed to say that if I’m talking about chicken? Does this make me even weirder?

Probably.

I have a feeling my dad is reading this post right now totally rolling his eyes. He is also probably muttering “Geez kid. How did you turn out so weird? You probably got it from your mother.”

It might be helpful if I tell you about the dish too. You know, since it’s a food blog and all.

If you’re a fan of citrus and herbs this chicken dish is totally up your alley. I used 3 types of citrus (orange, lemon and lime) and a punch of fresh rosemary and thyme. Then you make a quick marinade and roast it up until the chicken skin is super crispy {THE BEST PART!} and the kitchen smells like a citrus heaven.
