  • Active:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs

  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 pound mixed mushrooms, such as shiitake and cremini, stemmed and halved if large

  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced, plus slices for garnish

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley, plus more for garnish

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1 large garlic clove, minced

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 450° and place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven to heat. Season the chicken generously 
on both sides with salt and pepper. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the olive oil onto the hot baking sheet. Arrange the chicken in a single layer on the hot sheet and roast for about 5 minutes, until the chicken begins to brown. 

  2. In a medium bowl, toss the mushrooms and lemon slices with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, then carefully scatter 
evenly around the chicken in the oven. Roast for about 30 minutes, until the mushrooms 
and lemon are browned and the chicken is cooked through.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the remaining 6 tablespoons of olive oil with the 1/2 cup of parsley, the vinegar and garlic. Season the sauce with salt. 

  4. Transfer the chicken, mushrooms and lemon slices to a platter. Drizzle with some of the sauce and garnish with lemon and parsley. Serve, passing the remaining sauce at the table. 

Serve With

Quinoa and a green salad.

Review Body: This was an awesome recipe!! I used chicken breast because that's what I had. It's the parsely sauce that makes the recipe, I think. Even my picky eater husband loved it. I'd definitely make this again!
