Garlic Butter Chicken Thighs
- Chicken thighs
- Kosher salt
- Black pepper
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Preheat your oven to 400°. Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and season all over with salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
- Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Place the chicken thighs skin-side down and sear until the skin is golden and crispy. It’s about 5 minutes (they will not be cooked through at this point). Flip your chicken over once the skin is crispy.
- Place butter in the same skillet. When the butter is melted, add minced garlic. Stir the garlic around the pan for 30 seconds.
- Place the whole skillet in the oven and bake for 30 mins until chicken gets the internal temperature at 165°F. When the chicken is cooked, spoon some of the garlic butter sauce over the top of each chicken thigh. Top with parsley before serving.
