Recipe

ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 bone in, skin on, chicken thighs
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • fresh thyme and basil (optional), for serving

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350˚F. In a cast iron skillet, warm olive oil over medium heat.

  • Step 2

    Sprinkle the chicken with a big pinch of salt. Brown the chicken skin side down until golden and crispy - about 2-3 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and carefully pour out any excess fat.

  • Step 3

    Add cherry tomatoes, a pinch of salt and a couple sprigs of thyme back to the same skillet. Nestle the chicken back into the pan and place in the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165˚F.

  • Step 4

    Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes and sprinkle with fresh basil, thyme and add a couple slices of lemon. Enjoy!
