Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    8 bone-in skinless chicken thighs (about 2 3/4 pounds) (I used boneless)
    Coarse salt and ground pepper
    4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    1 cup dry white wine
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 lemon, cut into 8 thin slices, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1 tablespoon cold butter, cut into pieces

Directions

1. In a 12-inch skillet with a tight-fitting lid, arrange thighs, bone side up; season with salt and pepper. Add garlic, wine, and thyme. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook, 30 minutes. (I reduced the overall cooking time for this recipe by 10-15 minutes since I was using boneless chicken thighs.)

2. Turn chicken over. Place a lemon slice on each piece; cover and continue simmering until tender, about 15 minutes. Leaving garlic and liquid in skillet, transfer chicken and lemon slices to a platter. Cover tightly with foil to keep warm.

3. Bring liquid in skillet to a boil; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Add butter, parsley, and lemon juice; stir until butter has softened and sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chicken with sauce and, if desired, rice.

  • Very Good
    Very good basic braised chicken. The meat stayed moist. Threw one fresh chopped parsley on for serving and looked pretty. Could easily be a company dish as can be held warm in the juices. It is lemony but I love lemon so worked for me. Could reduce wine and use more wine. - 2/17/19

  • Bad
    The recipe smelled wonderful while cooking but it just wasn’t what I had hoped it would be. New husband asked that I not fix it again. - 10/24/18

    Not to bad. There was an awfully lot of lemon though. I might try it again to see if I messed up somewhere. - 3/12/18
