Quick and easy chicken thigh recipes are great to add to your weekly meal planner. Chicken gives us protein, and it's a leaner choice than pork or beef will be. The chicken thighs can be purchased with the bone in or with the bone out. Buying the chicken with the bone in will mean it'll take longer to cook, but then you'll also be left with some bones that you can make bone broth out of. Plus, chicken thighs are usually cheaper than chicken breasts, and if you like dark meat, you'll probably prefer chicken thighs. Chicken has actually been eaten as food since 600 BC, and maybe even before that. Many cultures believe in using all parts of the animal which is very responsible. Some cultures will even consider chicken's feet to be a delicacy. But don't worry there are no chicken feet in this recipe, we'll leave that up to those that really like to eat them. For this recipe, you'll need 4 bone-in chicken thighs, butter, garlic, thyme, honey, green beans, cherry tomatoes, and a lemon.
You just season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper on both sides and then heat a large skillet and put in the butter. Add the chicken and sear it. Then you add the garlic, thyme, honey, and lemon zest and juice and then put the chicken back in the pan and coat it with the sweet sauce. You add in the veggies on one side while keeping the chicken on the other side and bake everything in the oven until it's cooked. How simple is that? Just be sure you use a skillet that can go into the oven and be on the stove top as well, this will just make everything so much easier. But always be sure to use an oven mitt when removing it from the oven, the handle will get hot. That's all you need to do to make some of the best chicken ever. This recipe would be great with a salad as well for some more veggies or served over rice. Always try and buy organic free range chicken when you eat it and make sure that the chickens were raised humanely and not given antibiotics and hormones.
