Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Place 3 tablespoons butter in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in a microwave oven until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Smash garlic cloves with the side of a chef's knife and add garlic to the warm butter. Stir in lemon juice and onion powder. Set aside.

  • Sprinkle both sides of chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a medium-sized oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken, skin-side down, for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip chicken over and brush skin with lemon-butter mixture. Pour remaining butter mixture into skillet and remove from heat.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Brush skin every 10 minutes with pan juices.

  • Remove skillet from the oven and place chicken on a serving platter. Drizzle chicken with pan juices and garnish with parsley.

very very good. I sometimes add extra garlic or spices. Also I use the juices to make a nice sauce by adding a little milk or half and half. I have also add a little fresh chopped baby spinach to the creamy sauce. Spoon the sauce over the chicken. This is a nice dish for everyday or for dinner guest. Read More

I omitted the onion powder since I did not have any but the recipe turned out perfect. I served the chicken over spaghetti squash. A very easy meal. Read More

Delicious. I made this exactly as written, well except that after browning the chicken I transferred it and the sauce to a different dish to finish cooking in the oven. I served it with wild rice and steamed broccoli. Next time, because I WILL make this again, I’ll serve it with pasta. There was so much sauce in the pan it would have been great over some pasta. Thanks! Read More
