DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Rub chicken thighs with sea salt and ground black pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Combine lemon zest, lemon juice, white sugar and 1 cup water. Set aside.
  • Combine corn starch and 1/3 cup water. Set aside.
  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over a little higher than medium heat. Pan-fry chicken thighs (skin side down first) without oil until both sides become golden brown, about 5-8 minutes each side.
  • Transfer chicken thighs to a roasting rack. Bake for about 30 minutes or until center reaches 165°F.

  • Turn off heat. Stir in cilantro or parsley. Pour over chicken thighs. Use sliced lemon for garnish.
