Garlic & Herb Chicken

Chicken is a staple in my home and I'm certain it's the same in many other Caribbean households. So, finding new ways to prepare it is very important. If you're a regular when it comes to Food Therapy recipes, you guys know I love simple and easy. I like to think of it as my "week night busy mom fixes". Here's one of absolute faves when it comes to Chicken dinners: my Garlic and Herb Chicken Thighs (as seen pictured above) with my Creamy Mushroom Rice. It's my pleasure to share this recipe with you, so enjoy.


5 med-small Chicken Thighs

3 tbsp Butter

1 tbsp fresh chopped Parsley

1 tbsp fresh chopped Basil

1 sprig Rosemary (approx 1 tbsp)

4 cloves crushed and minced Garlic cloves

1/2 tsp Chicken Broth or Water

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Black Pepper

1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes


●Wash and clean chicken, leave skin on.

●Place chicken in large clean bowl and add salt, black pepper, garlic, parsley, basil, rosemary and pepper flakes and massage well into chicken.

●Set aside to marinate for 15-30 mins.

●Prep large skillet on medium heat and add butter.

● Once butter is melted and sizzling add chicken thighs skin side down and allow to cook for 5-8 mins until skin has nice golden brown color.

●Flip thighs and add liquid to saucepan with thighs, bring to a simmer and then cover with lid allowing thighs to cook thoroughly.

●Cook for 15-20 mins until 90% of liquid has reduced, cost thighs with remaining liquid and remove from heat.

●Garnish with fresh herbs and serve hot.

Thanks for joining me for another session of Food Therapy. See you soon ❤
