Juicy and full of flavor! A quick and easy way to prepare lemon/garlic chicken thighs.

  • Servings: 4


8 Skinless Boneless Chicken Thighs, washed and patted dry
⅓ cup Lemon Juice
¼ cup Olive Oil
10-15 Whole Peeled Garlic Cloves
½ cup Chicken Broth
1 Tbsp Dried Oregano
Salt & Pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the garlic in a roasting pan. Lay the chicken thighs over the garlic cloves. Top the chicken with the remaining ingredients and season well with salt and pepper. Roast in 400 degree oven, turning occasionally until the chicken is golden and most of the broth/juice has evaporated, leaving only olive oil in the pan.

Remove the chicken and garlic cloves from the pan leaving the olive oil behind. Serve the chicken garnished with the whole roasted garlic cloves and additional lemon wedges.

Helpful Tips:

The chicken in this dish is succulent and the garlic is soft, mild and delicious.
