  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs
  • coarse salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 oz baby, new potatoes or fingerling potatoes
  • 8 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 1 small lemon, cut into wedges
  • 6 sprigs thyme
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes


  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Season chicken with salt. In a large, heavy, ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Flip chicken and add potatoes, garlic, lemon, cherry tomatoes and thyme. Add the chicken broth and 1/2 teaspoon salt and bring it to a boil.
  2. Transfer skillet to oven. Roast, stirring potatoes halfway through, until potatoes are tender and chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
