Recipe by KateL
READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Salt and pepper liberally and allow to temper on a cutting board while preparing the garlic.
  • In a large ovenproof sauté pan over medium heat, cook the whole garlic cloves in olive oil and butter, stirring occasionally, until lightly golden, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove the garlic from the pan and set aside until Step 7.
  • Increase the heat to medium-high and brown the chicken skin-side down until the skin is golden and crispy, about 5 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken over, sprinkle on herbes de Provence.
  • Add the garlic back to the pan and place hot pan in oven. Bake chicken until cooked through, about 25 minutes.
  • Once the chicken is done, remove chicken thighs and garlic to a platter.
  • Place the pan over medium-high heat and sprinkle the drippings with flour and stir to incorporate.
  • Deglaze the pan with the stock and lemon juice. Pour the sauce over the chicken on the platter and serve with bread for sauce-mopping and garlic-spreading.
