Our mouths are watering just by typing this headline. Baked chicken thighs with Garlic. Butter. Gravy. (slurp!). The rich, decadent, warm and juicy flavors that combine within this dreamboat dish are incredible.

If you're not a fan of garlic (who's not a fan of garlic?!) - you may want to abort this recipe right now, things will get ugly for you real quick. Don't believe me? Well the first - and most important - ingredient is an ENTIRE head of garlic. That's what I thought, catch ya later garlic haters.

Now where was I? Oh yes…

1 whole head of garlic 
3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup of chicken stock
5 boneless sinless chicken thighs
2 sprigs of rosemary
1/2 cup of olive oil
Salt and Pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Remove every clove of garlic from the head and peel the skins off
  3. Add the olive oil, garlic cloves, chicken thighs and rosemary to a baking dish
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  5. Toss all of the ingredients together gently until each chicken thigh and garlic clove is well-coated
  6. Add to the oven and bake for 45 minutes
  7. When cooked remove the chicken and rosemary from the pan
  8. Discard the rosemary
  9. Pour the juices and the garlic cloves into a pot and add the butter and chicken stock
  10. Gently smash the baked garlic cloves as you stir the gravy for about 3-5 minutes until thickened
  11. Plate the chicken on a bed or arugula and mashed potatoes (or whatever you'd like) and pour the gravy over the top

Have a delicious and garlic-filled evening Yummies!
