Recipe for Skillet Chicken Thighs with Carrots and Potatoes

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 pound of small potatoes, halved
  • 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of chicken broth

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Season the chicken thighs with salt, pepper, rosemary, and thyme.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, skin-side down, and sear until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the potatoes, carrots, and garlic. Sauté for about 5 minutes, until the vegetables start to brown.
  4. Pour in the chicken broth and let it simmer for a few minutes. Place the seared chicken thighs on top of the vegetables, skin-side up.
  5. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and roast for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked and the vegetables are tender.
  6. Let the dish rest for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy this hearty and healthy Skillet Chicken Thighs with Carrots and Potatoes hot from the oven.
