Roasted Chicken with Garlic Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 chicken thighs (or chicken alternative)
  • Ground black pepper
  • Sea salt
  • 1 head (approx. 20 cloves) of garlic, skin removed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
  2. Rinse and then dry the chicken.
  3. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper liberally, then allow it to sit on the cutting board while preparing the garlic cloves.
  4. Cook the garlic cloves in olive oil and butter in a large ovenproof pan at medium heat for about 10 minutes, until lightly golden (stir occasionally). Remove the garlic from the pan and set it aside.
  5. Increase the stove heat to medium-high heat and brown the chicken skin-side down for about 5 minutes, until the skin is golden and crispy.
  6. Turn the chicken over, sprinkle with oregano, basil, thyme and rosemary.
  7. Add the garlic back into the pan with the chicken and place the pan in the oven. Bake for about 25 minutes, until cooked through completely.
  8. Once cooking is done, place the chicken thighs and garlic on a platter. Place the pan over medium-high heat and sprinkle the drippings with flour, then stir.
  9. Add some lemon juice and then pour the sauce over the chicken and garlic on the platter.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
