HOW TO MAKE CRISPY GARLIC BUTTER CHICKEN THIGHS



  • Preheat oven 425 degrees F.  Place cast iron skillet or enamel cast iron skillet in the oven while preparing the chicken thighs.  

  • In a small bowl, add the butter and minced garlic.  Microwave until the butter is melted; set aside.

  • Pat dry the chicken thighs with a paper towel and season all sides.  If using fresh green beans, trim the ends.  If using frozen green beans, do not thaw them out; add frozen.

  • Remove the skillet from the oven and heat it on medium heat.  Place the chicken skin side down and cook until crispy and golden, without moving it.  After 10 minutes and some of the fat has been released, move the chicken around to keep even browning.  Cook another 15-18 minutes more and remove the chicken to a platter skin side up.  Leave the rendered fat in the skillet.

  • Add the prepared green beans to the skillet.  Sprinkle salt and toss the green beans with the fat, coating them well.  

  • Place the chicken skin side up on and nestled in the green beans.  Drizzle the butter garlic over the top of the skin side up chicken. Transfer the skillet into the oven.  Roast in the oven until the chicken is golden brown and crispy and the internal temperature is 160 degrees F. in the thickest part of the chicken, approximately 15-20 minutes.  How big your chicken thighs are will depend on how long to roast them.
