How to make delicious garlic butter chicken in under 15 minutes

Are you in a dinner rut and looking for something new and exciting? Look no further than this incredibly easy and delicious garlic butter chicken recipe that will leave you wanting more. This chicken recipe is perfect for those busy weeknights when you want something quick and easy to make.

Seasoning blend

To start, create an amazing seasoning blend in a bowl using paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, and dried thyme. Don’t forget to add a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors. This seasoning blend is versatile and can be used on other proteins such as shrimp, salmon, and pork.

Seasoning the chicken

For this recipe, boneless skinless chicken thighs are recommended as they are affordable, easy to find, and have a great texture. Season each chicken thigh liberally with the seasoning blend to create a mild and delicious crust.

Cooking the chicken

In a non-stick ceramic pan, heat up a little bit of oil to make sure the chicken doesn’t stick. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken thighs to the pan with the seasoning side down. Cook for about four to five minutes or until golden and crispy before flipping and cooking for another three minutes on the other side.

Adding the garlic and butter

Now, it’s time to add the butter and garlic. Add two tablespoons of butter to the pan and let it melt before adding two cloves of minced garlic. Mix it all together until the chicken is coated in the delicious garlic butter. Don’t add the garlic too soon as we don’t want it to burn before the chicken is cooked.

Finishing the chicken

After 30 seconds to a minute of the garlic cooking, add a splash of chicken broth to the pan to help finish cooking the chicken. Spoon the mixture over the chicken so it is coated in garlicky buttery goodness.
