Loop Sunday Lunch: Garlic Butter Baked Chicken Thighs

For today's Sunday Lunch we feature a simple twist on chicken thighs that everyone's sure to love. 

Check out the recipe for Garlic Butter Baked Chicken Thighs from Delish, below. 

Total cook time: 50 mins 

Yields: 6 servings 


3 lb (6-8) bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

Kosher salt

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.
