Baked Chicken Thighs


OK, want to know the Blackburn's FAVORITE chicken thigh recipe? Here it is. The flavors of this chicken are spectacular. There is a tartness from the lemon juice that blends with the garlic and other spices to really produce an almost Mediterranean flare. Served over a rice bed which soaks up the juices, we can never have just one thigh. Between dinner, snacks and lunches the next day, our little family makes these lil gems disappear! I make this chicken about once a month in my home and my family never complains.
