Recipe

This delicious recipe from Food 52 couldn't be easier to make and is one of my favorite recipes to make when we have guests for dinner. Many times I will use in the bone-in thighs for a dinner party and do some with the skin-on for those who like it. But when I am making it for just us, I always use boneless skinless thighs to shave some extra calories and love the addition of onions and green pepper to pack in more flavor. Olives are also delicious as an addition. Feel free to amp up the garlic and thyme to get it to just where you like it.
