Instructions

Notes

  • Make sure to trim the chicken thighs from all excess fats.
  • Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 mins.
  • Be sure to save the extra marinade and pour over the chicken 5 minutes before you finish cooking them.
  • Use a preheated oven.
  • Opt for freshly squeezed lemon juice, you can really taste the tangy difference!
  • If you are only using the stove to cook the chicken, continue to pan sear the chicken on both sides, flipping occasionally and cook until full cooked, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Chicken is cooked through when the internal temperature reaches 165˚F on an instant read thermometer. 
  • Allow to cool down slightly before serving, this allows the juices to redistribute evenly throughout the chicken, making it super succulent.
