Recipe: Simple Thyme Baked Chicken

thymebaked chicken

The plan for dinner was, there was no plan. Fortunately, I had some chicken thighs in the fridge and a few sprigs of thyme hanging around, which gave me the idea for thyme baked chicken. This simple baked chicken takes only a few minutes to prepare. It’s a one-pan dish, perfect for those nights when the thought of fussing with more than one pan is just not in the cards. A little brush of olive oil with some seasoning and fresh herb, put it in the oven and let the delicious smells fill up your kitchen. Toss up a hearty salad and you’ve got one healthy delicious meal in the matter of minutes!
