Ingredients.

  • Koala Park Chicken thighs (6-8) bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

 

  • Freshly ground black pepper

 

  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

 

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

 

  • Zest of 1 lemon

 

  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves

 

  • 1 lemon, cut into rounds

 

  • 1 lb. baby potatoes, quartered

 

  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley, for garnish

Instructions.

  • Preheat oven to 425°. Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towel and season all over with salt and pepper.

 

  • In a medium bowl stir together butter, garlic, lemon zest, and thyme. Rub butter mixture all over chicken thighs, including under the skin.  

 

  • Place lemon rounds, potatoes, and chicken thighs in a 9"-x-13" baking dish and bake until thighs register 160°F on an instant-read thermometer, about 35 minutes. If you'd like the skin more crisp, broil on high for 1 to 2 minutes until golden.
