INGREDIENTS

  • 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

DIRECTIONS

  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.
