There are thousands of ways to prepare chicken. My favorite are the ones that inject the most flavor into this versatile protein. Garlic Chicken thighs with lemon and anchovies may sound like a odd combination, but I ensure you that it’s a flavorful dish that you will be making again and again.
Boneless skinless chicken thighs are probably one of the more forgiving cuts of chicken to cook. If you cook them a little longer than planned, they will still be juicy and delicious. If you choose to use chicken breast, reduce your cooking time by a few minutes so they do not dry out.
For this recipe you create a garlic and anchovy oil to cook the chicken in and you top your finished dish with lemon, capers and parsley. If you are apprehensive about cooking with anchovies don’t be, they just add a salty and tangy flavor to the chicken. Browning the chicken on the stove gives it a great sear, while transferring it to the oven makes sure it’s cooked through. Think about serving this dish with rice so you can capture all of the lemony sauce in every bite.
