Ingredients:

Batter

Steps:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper.

  3. Rub the chicken thighs or breasts with olive oil and then season them with the spice mixture on both sides.

  4. There are two cooking options.

  5. Option 1:Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and sear for 2-3 minutes per side, until browned. 

  6. Add the minced garlic to the skillet and cook for about 1 minute, until fragrant.

  7. Place lemon slices on top of the chicken and add butter on top of each piece of chicken.

  8. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

  9. Option 2:  Skip the sear and bake the chicken covered for 35 min at 400F and then uncover and bake for another 15 min at 425F or until fully cooked and crisped to your liking.

  10. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve the Lemon Butter Garlic Chicken hot. You can also squeeze some additional lemon juice over the chicken before serving for extra flavor.
