As the chicken cooks, the sharp bite of garlic mellows. Add even more garlic at the start of cooking for a deeper garlic flavor.

4 large bone-in chicken thighs, with skin (about 2 pounds)
Freshly ground pepper
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped or pressed through a garlic press
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 450°.
Season the chicken thighs liberally on all sides with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, combine the garlic and olive oil. Brush the olive oil mixture on the chicken thighs. Roast in the oven, skin-side up, until the chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Serve.
The salt-and-pepper-seasoned chicken can be kept in the refrigerator uncovered for up to two days.
