Chicken Thighs with Lemon, Garlic & Thyme are roasted in a delicious broth made with lemon juice, white wine, and chicken stock and is easily prepared in one baking dish.  A simple recipe, these chicken thighs always turn out super moist, juicy and lemony-delicious!

I haven’t made chicken in a while, and decided it was too hot outside to grill.

So instead of grilling the chicken outdoors, I decided to roast these chicken thighs inside with only 6 main ingredients, including tossing some garlic cloves and fresh thyme into the mix.

The result? They turned out amazing!!

This easy recipe features chicken thighs with plenty of broth and fresh herbs. It’s what makes them so flavorful.

I took the liberty to make Oven Steak Fries, and threw those into the oven while the chicken was roasting and served them as a side.

Dinner was complete in less than an hour.  Perfect for a weeknight meal!

 

How about some suggestions for sides with chicken…

You may enjoy our favorite Garlic Mashed Potatoes, or our Oven Baked Parsnip Fries, or maybe Sweet Mashed Potatoes with Mascarpone Cheese.

Best part?  No matter which side you decide on, when you serve these chicken thighs with lemon, garlic and thyme, always remember to pour the remaining lemon juices over them; making the thighs and the side you choose taste even more flavorful.

Chicken Thighs with Lemon, Garlic & Thyme makes an easy meal and will create a wonderful aroma that permeates throughout the house, bringing everyone to the table with an appetite.

ENJOY!!

      Thank you Dan! You can use other herbs such as oregano or a blend of Italian seasonings, in place of thyme. Have a great weekend! 🙂

    I smiled as I know my husband would enjoy this meal immensely. With all that flavorful sauce, I think I would like to have some garlic mashed potatoes and drizzle some on top of them.
