This dish couldn't be easier, but the payoff is succulent, sweet, savory and so much more than the sum of its parts.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375°. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. In an extra-large oven-safe skillet, melt butter over medium-high. Add chicken thighs; cook until nicely browned, about 4 minutes per side. (If you don't have a pan large enough to fit all the thighs, brown them in batches and transfer to a 3-quart baking dish to finish in the oven.)
