I’ve got an epic family dinner recipe for you today!  So simple to prepare and packed with great flavor.  We had this for Sunday dinner and I’ll be making it again very soon.  Enjoy friends!


Pan Roasted Garlic Lemon Chicken Thighs

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.

Salt and pepper the thighs while you heat the oil.

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.
