I love cooking chicken thighs because they are versatile and economical.  This chicken dish brings together the best of your summer herb garden in a one dish meal! Tender and flavorful, you’ll think about adding more chicken thighs to your regular dinner rotation.

Ingredients:
6 chicken thighs
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, or to taste
3 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
3 cups diced carrots

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Arrange chicken thighs in a roasting pan; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Scatter onion over and around chicken.
  4. Top chicken with basil, garlic, and rosemary.
  5. Pour chicken broth into pan and evenly distribute carrots around the chicken.
  6. Cover pan with aluminum foil.
  7. Cook in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. (An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F.)
  8. Remove aluminum foil and continue cooking until chicken is browned, 10 to 15 more minutes.
