Garlic and Herb Chicken Thigh Skillet is a quick and easy one skillet dinner recipe that the whole family loves!

Hey there, I Wash You Dry readers! I’m Jessica from Coffee & Crayons and today I’m stopping in to share with you one of my families favorite chicken skillet dinners. Don’t worry, it’s super easy and, unlike many of my other favorite chicken recipes, does not require the use of a meat tenderizer (is it just me or is that the worst?)

Ok, so what does this fantastic family dish call for?

Herbs. All the herbs.
Fresh garlic. Seriously, fresh is best (just keep the breath mints nearby).
A skillet. I love my cast iron skillet.

Ok, so let’s chat for a moment about the chicken.

How To Make Garlic Herb Chicken Thigh Skillet

For this particular chicken skillet, if you want it to turn out nice and juicy (and totally addicting) then you MUST USE CHICKEN THIGHS…WITH THE SKIN! Sorry, I’m not really yelling. Ok, maybe a little. But it’s not AT you and I promise, you’ll thank me later.

Now, if you’ve been to my site, you’ll probably notice that this is a little out of character for me as I generally cook with skinless boneless chicken. However, there are certain special dishes (like this one!) that benefits from the added fats (aka FLAVOR!) that really help lock in all that amazing juiciness.

Besides, it makes my son and husband super happy.

If you absolutely insist on eating chicken breasts, that’s totally ok. It will still turn out amazing, just don’t be disappointed when the chicken doesn’t fall apart in your mouth.

Just sayin’.

If you’re wondering what to serve with this chicken my recommendation would be buttered mashed potatoes. Even better if those mashed potatoes have cheese in them. However, rice or lightly buttered egg noodles would also go perfectly. As for vegetables? Anything goes, my friends! In fact, go crazy with the veggies! Carrots, however, are particularly delicious.

And, just like that, dinner is ready and served and all your favorite people are full and happy.

You’re welcome 😉
