  • Cook the chicken thighs over medium-high heat.
  • DO NOT move the chicken thighs around; let cook for 5 minutes or until you can easily flip them over.
  • After adding in the butter and garlic, a splash of chicken broth will help with scraping up all the bits on the bottom of the pan. If you want, you can also use your favorite white wine or apple juice.
