Chicken Thighs…

I haven’t made chicken in a while and decided to pick up a package of chicken thighs.

It’s been raining, 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.

And the result?  They turned out amazing!!

This quick recipe features chicken thighs with plenty of broth and fresh herbs. 

Besides, the juices or as some will call it -“the sauce” – is what makes them so darn flavorful.

Plus,  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 dish to complement these chicken thighs.

They both baked at the same time! Making dinner easier.

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

Options for Sides with These Chicken Thighs? 

Besides our oven steak fries, you may enjoy serving these chicken thighs with some of our favorites!

The Best Part? 

No matter which side dish you decide to serve with these chicken thighs, always remember to pour the remaining lemon juices over the thighs.

The extra lemon juices will not only make the thighs positively amazing, but the side you choose to serve it with will become more flavorful. YUM!

How to Make Chicken Thighs with Lemon Garlic & Thyme…

For this recipe, you will need the following:

Ingredients Needed for our Chicken Thighs Recipe:

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 2 pounds)

INSTRUCTIONS: (with step-by-step directions)

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190C) and on “ROAST.”

2.  Rinse the thighs in a large bowl with running water over them.   Drain the water.  Then rinse the chicken a few times until the water comes out clean.  Trim any excess fat from the thighs and discard. Allow them to drain in a colander.

Serves 3 to 5

QUICK NOTE and TIPS…

  • The cooking time will vary, depending on how small or large the thighs are. It could range from 45 minutes or longer. So it’s best to keep an eye on it while roasting.
  • If you decide to “Bake” (rather than Roast) the thighs will take longer to cook, most likely over 1 hour or more.
