a potluck, some chicken

It's been a while since I've had a group of friends together for dinner. And for once, nearly everyone contributed. There was a delicious spinach dip, some hummus, a great summer salad, and plenty of beverages.
When I host a dinner, I usually provide the main course.

- layer sliced yellow summer squash, carrots, sweet potato, and red onions in a 13x9 Pyrex.
- drizzle a little olive oil, some salt and pepper, some fresh thyme.
- pan fry the chicken with either olive or sesame oil until golden, season with paprika, cayenne, garlic powder.
- place chicken on layered vegetables
- mince half an onion, 2 cloves garlic, 1 jalaeƱop, 1/2 green pepper mixed with some lemon juice, olive oil.
- cover chicken with mixture, cover Pyrex with aluminum foil, bake for 30-40 minutes at 350-375.
