Prepare the Chicken Thigh

  • To prepare the chicken thighs, you need to dry the chicken thighs using a paper towel, trim off any excess fat around it. Add the following seasonings into the chicken thigh – salts and lemon juice. Leave aside the chicken thigh for about 15 minutes to let it absorb the lemon juice and salt.
  • While at it, mix the thyme, garlic cloves, pepper, and rosemary together. Use the mixed seasoning ingredients to coat the chicken thigh.
  • Heat one tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat then sear the chicken thighs until each side is browned. Heat each sides for about 8 minutes each.
  • Put the chicken in a plate and keep aside.
