My husband and I have officially sold our current home and are set to take possession of our new home (our forever home quite possibly) by the end of week.
To say that we are excited is an understatement.
We are a little stressed by all that moving entails. I am currently in the middle of packing up the kitchen (we have amassed a large assortment of kitchen and baking equipment and gadgets over the last 8 years… and that’s after I Marie Kondo’d our stuff).
Nonetheless, the blog needs content (I skipped last week so I feel guilty).
Today’s post is a chicken recipe for garlic lovers! In particular, tasty (and inexpensive) chicken thighs combined with wonderful fresh garlic along with fragrant rosemary and the bright zing of lemon.
It’s a no-fuss recipe that uses few ingredients, but creates rich, scrumptious flavours. It’s lovely paired with a side of rice (I used a wild rice blend if you’re wondering from the pictures) and a quick roasted asparagus for a complete, healthy meal.
I hope you enjoy this recipe for One-Pan Rosemary Garlic Chicken!
Before you start cooking, here are two helpful tips:
Make sure you use a large skillet/pan with a lid. You’ll need a fitted lid to finish cooking the chicken.
Prepare all the ingredients before you start cooking. Take out all the ingredients and measure, chop, juice, etc. before you start cooking.
You’ll know that you actually have all the ingredients you need for this recipe if you do this.
Also, this helps prevent the potential for overcooking or burning ingredients (you’re not running around trying to find ingredients or prep them).
How do you make this chicken recipe?
Prepare your ingredients such as quartering your garlic cloves, dicing the onions, mincing the rosemary, and zesting (and juicing) the lemon. Full ingredients amounts and complete instructions in the recipe card down below.
Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels and salt and pepper each side of the chicken. Melt butter in a pan and brown both sides of the chicken thighs. Remove onto a plate.
Sautéed garlic and onions in the pan until light golden-brown in colour. Add rosemary. Deglaze the pan with chicken broth.
Return the chicken back to the pan along with the more chicken broth, lemon juice, and zest. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for an additional 10-12 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked through.
Plate the chicken thighs and spoon over with the garlic sauce. Serve with the sides of your choice (like rice and roasted asparagus). Best served immediately.
