Garlic Skillet Chicken recipe


1. Score the chicken thighs skin side with a sharp knife. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

2. Heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side; set aside.

3. Add onion and garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in tomato and cook for 3-4 minutes, then add chicken broth and bring to a boil.

4. Add chicken thighs back to the skillet and sprinkle with thyme. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 25-30 minutes. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve immediately over white rice, bulgur, or quinoa.
