Rosemary Chicken Thighs Recipe. A stove-top to oven one pot meal that loaded with luscious savory flavors in a rich white wine sauce. Easy and quick and delicious dinner recipe.
I was reading a food blog the other day that suggested that we come up with a new word to describe a dish or recipe that is surprisingly easy and fabulously delicious. I’ve come up with omgeasy, and this recipe fits the bill.
One Pot Chicken Thigh Recipes
We’re big fans of one pot braised or roasted chicken thigh dishes and this stove-top to oven meal is one of our favorites.
My cast iron skillet has become my best friend in this arena. A good quality and well-seasoned cast iron skillet is worth it’s weight in gold. It’s best feature, browning stove top and then transferring to the oven.
This Rosemary Chicken Thighs recipe is so easy that the hardest part is flouring and searing the chicken in hot oil. Which is really not hard at all. Just a little messy here and there. The rest is a breeze.
Ingredients are simple when compared to the complex end-result flavors. After searing the chicken thighs in your cast iron skillet, just add white wine, chicken broth, fresh rosemary, bay leaves, garlic and lemon wedges.
That’s it! Pop it in the oven and in 30 minutes, voila, you’re singing its praises.
A great tip to keep that chicken crisp is to heat the skillet over medium high heat and not add the oil until the skillet is hot. When the oil is shimmering, then add the chicken thighs skin side down. Don’t turn them until they skillet releases them easy.
