INGREDIENTS

  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • 1 fresh lemon
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 1.25 lbs.)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Place the butter in a bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds, or until the butter is melted. Stir in the minced garlic, paprika, salt, some freshly cracked pepper (about 1/8 tsp), and about a tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley. Stir to combine.
  • Place the chicken thighs in an 8×8″ baking dish. Spoon the garlic butter mixture over the chicken thighs, using the back of the spoon to spread it over the surface of the chicken.
  • Slice the lemon into half-rounds. Scatter the lemon pieces around the chicken in the dish.
  • Transfer the baking dish to the oven and bake the chicken for 30-35 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken thighs reaches 165ºF.
  • Use a spoon to drizzle the baking juices over top of the chicken, then sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley over top just before serving.
