Can I Use Other Chicken Parts?

You can use chicken breast or even chicken tenders for my Pan Roasted Garlic Lemon Chicken Thighs. Adjust the cook time accordingly.

I used chicken boneless skinless chicken thighs, technically you can use whatever chicken parts you’d like, just adjust the cooking time according to what you choose. Breasts would take longer, tenderloins less. You get the idea.

Why Should I Use Chicken Thighs?

Chicken thighs are a great substitute for chicken breast. You can grill and sauté them just like breasts, but they really shine in stews and braises, where long, moist cooking can easily overcook and toughen chicken breast meat. Chicken thighs have nice sections of easily accessible, tender meat.

When the oil is hot, saute minced garlic for just a few seconds before you add the chicken thighs.

Place about 5 chicken thighs per large skillet and let cook for 10 minutes then cover with lid for another 20 minutes. Add baby red potatoes to the open spaces.

    I am a bit confused as to why you say to use 2 skillets? It looks as though the thighs will all fit into one skillet and no mention is made of the 2nd one in the directions. Recipe looks good.
