Baked to crispy perfection, these tender chicken thighs are seasoned with a homemade Mediterranean marinade and served with vibrant garlic turmeric rice. This simple weeknight dinner is easy to throw together and full of flavor!
Garlic obsessed? Feel free to add 1 clove, minced to the marinade if you'd like a punch of garlic flavor! Totally optional.
Serve with a simple veggie salad. I love combining chopped avocado, tomato, cucumber and peppers with a drizzle of oil and vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper.
In a pinch you can marinate the chicken for 30 minutes or so. If you plan a little, whisk it together and start the marination process that morning or, better yet, marinate your chicken the night before. I've had best results tossing it together while I'm prepping dinner the night before, and then baking the chicken for lunch or dinner the following day. Delicious!
Recipe yields 4 proper servings but can easily be devoured by two hungry adults when the mood strikes. If you manage to squirrel some away for later, the leftovers are fantastic too!
