Happy Thursday, my peeps! It’s a double post kind of day! This one will be short and sweet! I posted our dinner last night on my STORIES and had SO many requests for the recipe, so I wanted to throw it up here really quickly for you! One of my best friends shared this recipe with me a few years ago, so I’m sure I’ve lost items and added things along the way! It is a delicious weeknight dinner option and it’s so easy!
4 Chicken Thighs (Bone-In)
4-5 Chicken Drumsticks
Head of Garlic (peeled)
Olive Oil (I just eye it. I would say 2-3 tablespoons)
Container of Cherry Tomatoes (whole)
(Big) Container of Basil
Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Basically all I do is pour some olive oil in the bottom of my DUTCH OVEN. Then, I add about 4 bone-in chicken thighs and 4-5 chicken drumsticks on top. I cover with pink salt and pepper and more olive oil. I throw in a whole head of peeled garlic. I just toss the little (whole) garlic pieces all around the dish, so they are evenly distributed. I toss a container of cherry tomatoes on top (whole) and then take a whole bunch of basil (stems chopped off) and throw that on top. I bake at 325 degrees for about an hour and a half, or until the chicken is done. Bake with the lid on. Halfway through, you can mix it around. Sometimes, I do this, sometimes I forget. Either way, it’s just as good! But the mixing helps get more of the juices evenly distributed! You can definitely cook at a higher temp for shorter-just do what works for you! This recipe is easy and so delish! I usually serve with a veggie and salad or a starch. Last night, I served it with roasted butternut squash and wild rice. It was delicious!
See what I mean?! Such an easy weeknight (or weekend) dinner! We love this one! I’m sure you will too! Thanks to my friend, Krista for sharing this one with me! It’s become a favorite around here! XO!
