Directions

1. To make the chicken thighs with asparagus: Pat dry chicken thighs with paper towels. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika on both sides.

2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, oregano, rosemary, and thyme and quickly stir until fragrant, be careful not to burn.

3. Lay chicken thighs skin side down in the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes then flip and cook another 5-7 minutes, until cooked through and a cooking thermometer displays 165°F (75°C). If chicken browns too quickly, lower the heat.

4. Remove the cooked chicken thighs from the skillet and set them aside on a plate. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the same skillet. Once the butter is melted, add asparagus to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Saute asparagus for 4-6 minutes or until tender. Deglaze with chicken broth or water and give a quick stir to coat the asparagus. Reduce the sauce for one minute more.

5. Return chicken thighs back to the pan for a couple of minutes and serve the chicken thighs with asparagus immediately, garnished with fresh herbs and lemon slices. Enjoy!

Tips for the garlic butter chicken thighs recipe

Garlic, butter, and herbs come together to flavor the chicken thighs that come crispy on the outside and deliciously juicy on the inside. Here are a few tips for this easy chicken recipe:

  • Remove chicken thighs from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before cooking to bring them close to room temperature.
  • Make sure to thoroughly pat dry chicken thighs to ensure the crispiness of the skin.
  • For a variant of this recipe for chicken thighs, you can use chicken tenders instead. They’re delicious and cook a lot faster! Just keep an eye on it so they don’t overcook.
  • If you like your asparagus more tender, you can blanch them in boiling water for 2 minutes before sauteeing.

How and how long to keep the chicken thighs leftovers

You can the chicken leftovers for up to 3 days in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Reheat on the stove on low with a few drops of water to loosen the sauce.
