Easy Garlic Chicken Recipe

Some of the cheapest parts of the chicken are the chicken thighs. Some of the tastiest parts are the same chicken thighs.

Chicken thighs have a higher fat content than chicken breasts. The meat is darker than chicken breast. It is more common the get chicken thighs with skin.

To be honest, I’m not a fan of chicken skin so I always take the skin off but even chicken thighs without skin have higher fat content and taste better.

If you cook chicken breast you always have to be on the lookout the chicken will not dry out. You will not have this fear with thighs at all.

This recipe is keto-approved and fits perfectly in a low-carb diet.

How To Make Garlic Chicken Thighs With Mushrooms

The chicken thighs do not have any bones in them. Trim off excess fat from the chicken. 

Squeeze the lemon and pour the juice on the chicken. Set aside.

Combine the onion powder, garlic powder, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and cover the chicken with this seasoning.

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium to high heat and add olive oil. Sear the chicken thighs until browned on both sides.

This will take about 10 minutes. Take the chicken out of the pan and set it aside.

Brush the mushrooms clean if necessary and cut the mushrooms into thin slices.

Now melt the butter in the same skillet and add the mushrooms. Pan-fry the mushrooms soft and browned in about 5 minutes.

Finely chop the garlic and add the garlic, the parsley to the skillet and sauté for about 1 minute.

Add a splash of water so all the chicken bites can be released from the pan.

Return chicken to the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste if required. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes.

You can garnish with some fresh parsley. Serve your mushroom garlic chicken thighs immediately.

Can You Eat The Skin On Chicken Thighs?

If you are wondering if you can eat the skin on chicken thighs the answer is yes, you absolutely can. The best way to eat skin is to have crispy skin.

Put the thighs in a bowl and squeeze fresh lemon juice on the thighs. Heat a skillet. You can add a combination of olive oil and butter.

Bake the thighs with the skin down. Let the thighs sit and resist the urge to move the thighs around. The chicken will release after a couple of minutes.

Turn and bake the other side of the thighs. Move the chicken around for another couple of minutes. Add a little bit of water to the thighs.

Do not cover the skin with water. Close the pan. Heat your oven and put the pan in.

Make certain to have the skin side of the thighs face up so the skin will not get wet and go soft.

Can You Make Garlic Chicken Recipe Ahead?

Yes, this is a great recipe to make ahead. In fact, I think that chicken dishes in general and this recipe, in particular, taste better if you make them ahead of time.

By making the dish ahead the flavors will intensify and the chickened will be infused by the seasoning and time.

Just make ahead and store properly, you will love this recipe even more.

    I would just like to point out that you should never wash chicken. It is very dangerous. It even says on the packaging not to wash it!
    Just wipe the chicken with a damp paper towel.

    I’m just questioning 4 measly thighs for 4 people? One thigh per person doesn’t seem like much of a meal?

      Patti,

      It all depends on how big the thighs are and if you are serving big or small eaters. Feel free to make more and serve 2 or 3 or more thighs per person.

    This is the first time I hear that washing chicken is dangerous. I always wash my chicken or pieces of chicken vigorously ( three times ) under running tap water with vinegar or salt. Then leave it to rest in lemon or lime juice for about 15 minutes. I still want to know why it is dangerous to wash chicken? I’m probably not doing the right thing……Dianna Francis

      Dianna,

      I use to wash chicken before cooking and use lemon on my chicken but found out that with washing chicken it can increase the risk of food poisoning from campylobacter bacteria. I never had food poisoning after washing chicken and cooking it. But it seems that washing chicken under the tap can spread the bacteria onto your hands, tap, kitchen counter, cooking equipment, etc. So that is why it is dangerous.

    Made this recipe tonight and loved it. I did cook the chicken a bit more than recipe called for because some of the thighs were thicker than others but otherwise followed this pretty closely. I did mix a few more seasonings again because some thighs were thick and I wanted enough flavor. Thank you for an easy meal. I would recommend serving with rice or orzo or perhaps a couscous side.

    This is a very good basic recipe that can be added to. I had three boneless chicken thighs in the freezer and needed a meal for a Sunday night. I had shitaki and portobella mushrooms in my refrigerator and used those. I also deglazed the pan with the white wine I was drinking. I learned that trick in the 70’s. We love chicken thighs and my husband especially thought it was a dish I should make again. Thanks for the inspiration.
