  • Summary

    An easy, superfragrant weeknight version of classic chicken under a brick, this recipe uses chicken thighs instead of a butterflied whole bird. Lavish quantities of lemon, garlic and fresh herbs season the flesh, and the skin gets shatteringly crisp and salty. This recipe makes great use of a cast-iron skillet (or two) and is a great dish to cook when seasoning a new pan because of the large amount of fat that melts into the pan. (You pour it off before serving.) If you have a pan that is large enough to fit all the thighs, you can cook them in one batch.

    Ingredients

    • 2 lemons, rinsed
    • 1/4 cup fresh thyme or oregano leaves
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
    • 10 to 12 medium or large garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
    • 1 teaspoon red chile flakes
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 9 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, rinsed in cold water
    • 18 fresh sage leaves
    • 3 to 4 large garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced (to yield 18 slices)
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • Fresh thyme or oregano sprigs, for garnish
