Another easy and delicious recipe from Delish!

You can prepare this recipe in advance and pop it in the oven after work and you’ll be serving delicious and filling chicken thighs in a matter of minutes!


  • 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


Preheat oven to 425°. Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towel and season all over with salt and pepper.

In a medium bowl stir together butter, garlic, lemon zest, and thyme. Rub butter mixture all over chicken, including under the skin.

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 (check for doneness, they may need to cook a little longer). If you’d like the skin more crisp, broil on high for 1 to 2 minutes until golden.
