WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 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
  • cloves garlic, minced
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • lemon, cut into rounds
  • 1 lb. baby potatoes, quartered
  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, for garnish

HOW TO MAKE IT:

  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.

 

Try it and enjoy 🙂
