Instructions
  1. Place the mesquite flour in a shallow dish. Add the sea salt and black pepper to the mesquite flour and mix well with a fork or whisk.
  2. Add the Spanish olive oil to a large sauté pan, covering the entire base, heat on medium. Roll chicken thighs in the mesquite flour.
  3. Slowly add the floured chicken to the pan. Cover while cooking with the lid slightly ajar to let the steam release and to allow the chicken to cook through.
  4. Turn the chicken over after 5-7 minutes. Cook on the other side until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 – 170 degrees.
  5. Place the cooked chicken on a plate with paper towels for at least 2-3 minutes just before serving to absorb any excess grease and to cool just slightly.
  6. Serve with your favorite salad or veggies and mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
