Check out this simple, no mess Garlic Butter Baked Chicken Thighs recipe from Delish that everyone will be sure to love.
Prep time: 15 mins
Total time: 50 mins
3 lb. (6-8) bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
5 cloves garlic, minced
Zest of 1 lemon
1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves
1 lemon, cut into rounds
1 lb. baby potatoes, quartered
1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, for garnish
1. Preheat oven to 425°. Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towel and season all over with salt and pepper.
2. In a medium bowl stir together butter, garlic, lemon zest, and thyme. Rub butter mixture all over chicken thighs, including under the skin.
3. Place lemon rounds, potatoes, and chicken thighs in a 9"-x-13" baking dish and bake until thighs register 160°F on an instant-read thermometer, about 35 minutes. If you'd like the skin more crisp, broil on high for 1 to 2 minutes until golden.
