I'm such a fan of chicken thigh dinners. This is similar to one I make except with honey and oregano. Must try this one.

Delicious looking chicken, Velva. I love thighs on the bone. They have so much more flavor. Great combination of flavors. Thanks for sharing!

Such timing! I just pulled lemon thyme chicken out of my oven this morning!

Tina said...

I love thighs and hardly ever cook the breast meat, (even though it's probably better for me) and I saved your recipe here. Will link up when I try it.

I think I would like the bright flavor of this. Normally I don't like baked chicken because it's bland but you certainly took care of nixing the "bland" here. Sounds great.

Lynn said...

Oooh, I'm so hungry looking at your chicken! It looks delicious. Too bad I can't leap through the screen for a taste.

Tina said...

I made this last night - will let you know when I post it. It was excellent!
