First, you need to preheat the oven to 375°. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. 

Take a large oven-safe skillet and keep it over medium-high heat. Add oil and heat.  Sear, the seasoned chicken skin-side down, until golden, 4 to 5 minutes per side. 

Transfer the chicken to a plate and pour off half the fat from the skillet.

Return the skillet to medium heat. Add garlic, red pepper flakes, and thyme. Cook for 1 minute, and stir in broth, heavy cream, sun-dried tomatoes, and Parmesan, and season with salt. 

Bring to a simmer, then return chicken to skillet, skin-side up. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the chicken is cooked through for 17 to 20 minutes make sure that when the chicken is pierced with a knife, the juices run clear.

Chocolate Lava Mug Cake

These can be made individually and you don’t have to make a big batch when you only need two. You can either use a big Lindt chocolate ball or smaller pieces of chocolate to make it look super rich and you would probably get the same effect. It would be gooey on the inside, rich and fudgy on the outside.

Ingredients

How to make

In a large mug, put 3 tablespoons of butter and melt in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Add sugar, all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa, and a big pinch of salt. Mix it well until it gets nice and chocolatey. 

Add milk, egg, and baking powder and stir until you get a nice and smooth batter. On top of the batter, place 1oz of your favorite Chocolate. Pour a tablespoon of water over the center by covering the chocolate to make the chocolate mug cake delicious, melted center. 

Pop it into the microwave for about 1 minute and 20 seconds. Start with 60 seconds and check your cake. The top should still be a little sticky, but fully set.

Top with powdered sugar, whip cream, vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, chocolate chips, or any other favorite toppings.

Crab cake recipe

This is one of the best recipes for date night and is so simple and tasty. The fresh, crispy crab cake will make the dinner date night look cool.  This is a delicious crab cake recipe, and adding on the homemade tartar sauce will make it yummy. 

This is pretty classic with mayonnaise, egg, Worcestershire sauce, and great crab meat. I fried crab to make them a little crispy to have the perfect texture, but the baking powder keeps them fluffy.

Ingredients 

How to make

Take a medium mixing bowl. Add the crushed crackers with the crabmeat and combine. 

Take a small mixing bowl, add mayonnaise, egg, Worcestershire Sauce, baking powder, hot sauce, and parsley and whisk together until it gets smooth.

Fold the mayonnaise mixture gently with the crabmeat mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until ready to cook.

Then divide the crabmeat mixture into 8 equal parts and pat it into 1½-inch hamburger-like patties very gently.  Make sure that you do not overdo it. Set the patties aside until ready to cook.

Set a large skillet over medium heat and, when it gets hot, add oil and heat until it shimmers. The crab cakes should be set in the hot oil and cooked, for about 3 minutes per side and they should be golden brown on both sides. 

Do not crowd the skillet, so cook the crab cakes in two batches. Transfer the cooked cakes to a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil and then to a serving plate. Garnish with fresh dill leaves and a wedge of fresh lemon.

Serve with Homemade Tartar Sauce.
