Roasted chicken thighs with sage and pear

Savory chicken thighs with fresh herbs and the sweetness of pear. This is a perfect super-simple recipe for fall that fills your kitchen with the smell of comfort food. I also like this quick dinner because it literally takes a few minutes to prep, something I can appreciate as a mom of little ones.

1 lb skinless, boneless chicken thighs
2 tbsp olive or grape seed oil
3-4 fresh sage leaves
2 pears
salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Rinse chicken thighs and place in glass baking dish. Roll up sage leaves and slice, and run your knife through them again to dice. Combine oil and sage in a bowl, and brush over thighs. Turn once to cover chicken. Quarter pears and place around chicken in the baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.

Roast for 40-50 minutes, until meat reaches 165 degrees on meat thermometer.
