Buttery and garlic-y chicken thighs…This Baked Chicken Thighs with Garlic Butter recipe would definitely be a savory, no-fuss weeknight dinner!



4 chicken thighs

5 cloves garlic (crushed)

zest of 1 lemon

1/4 c. butter

1 tbsp. olive oil

salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large, oven-safe skillet over medium heat, add butter and olive oil.
  4. Let the butter melt and then add slightly crushed garlic.
  5. Add chicken and sear until golden brown and skin is crispy. Flip and make sure that both sides are cooked. If you see the garlic getting brown, take them out.
  6. Place the skillet into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Once done, transfer to a plate, spoon garlic butter over each piece and serve.


If you are into crispy skin and more flavor, choose chicken thighs with thick skin. Make sure that the garlic cloves are slightly crushed so it will be easier for them to release their flavor.
