Lemon & Rosemary Roasted Chicken Thighs

Make it a habit to eat healthy without depriving yourself of your favorite menus. There's always a dupe.

  • 6 medium boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large lemons
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried ground sage
  • ½ teaspoons ground black pepper

  • How to prepare:
    1. You’ll need a mortar and pestle for this recipe. You CAN do this in a food processor, if need be. Add your garlic to the mortar.
    2. Add 2 tsp. salt to your mortar. This will act as a gentle abrasive to break down the garlic.
    3. Grind your garlic and salt together until a coarse paste is formed.
    4. Once your paste it formed it’s time to add the oil. Slowly drizzle it about 1 tsp. at a time while grinding everything together. When you have ground it together, add more oil.
    5. Repeat the grinding process until a smooth paste is formed. This is called an allioli.
    6. Get your chicken ready, trim off excess grit, but keep the fat on the thighs.
    7. Dry off your chicken with some paper towels.
    8. Add your chicken to a Ziploc bag, trying to not overlap the chicken too much.
    9. Add your garlic allioli to the Ziploc bag, trying to spread it on the chicken as much as possible.
    10. Using your hands, apply pressure to the chicken and rub the garlic allioli into the chicken as best as you can.
    11. Marinate the chicken for anywhere from 2 to 10 hours.
    12. Once your chicken is marinated, take it out of the fridge and preheat your oven to 425°F.
    13. Slice 2 lemons up thin and create a layer of the sliced lemons on the bottom of a baking pan.
    14. Put your chicken on the top of the lemons, pouring any remaining allioli from the bag on top.
    15. Remove your thyme leaves from the stem. You want about 2 Tbsp. fresh thyme.
    16. Sprinkle the thyme, rosemary, sage, pepper and remaining salt on top of the chicken. Rub it gently into the chicken.
    17. Put your chicken into the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the juices run clear.
    18. Remove the chicken from the baking pan and put it in some foil to retain heat.
    19. Add all of the pan drippings to a saucepan.
    20. Make sure that all of the juice is in the saucepan, you can use a spoon to gently push any excess juice out of the lemons.
    21. Bring your sauce to a boil, while stirring continuously.
    22. Once the sauce is at a boil, turn the heat to medium-low (or low, depending on your stove) while continuously mixing it.
    23. Let the sauce reduce until it’s a bit thick. Spoon this over your chicken and serve!
