Lemon Herb Crusted Chicken Thighs is a quick, easy, budget-friendly, and succulent chicken dish. It's also freezer and weeknight friendly! —Rachel (Simple Seasonal)

What You'll Need
  • 8 pieces chicken thighs
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 3 pieces cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dry crushed red pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
  1. 1. Preheat your oven to 350º F. Rinse off your chicken thighs, remove the skins, and place them into an oven-safe dish. To remove the skin simply place your thumb between the meat and the skin and pull.
  2. 2. Mix all your ingredients in a bowl, evenly spread your marinade over your chicken thighs, and then cover your pan with foil.
  3. 3. Bake covered for 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165º F. Once cooked, allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
