Lemon Garlic Butter Chicken Thighs with Green Beans is a flavorful and easy-to-make dish. Here’s a recipe for you:


For the Chicken Thighs:

  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 tablespoon fresh thyme)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

For the Green Beans:

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels and season both sides generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken thighs skin-side down. Cook for about 5-6 minutes until the skin is golden brown and crispy. Flip the thighs and cook for another 3-4 minutes on the other side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant. Be careful not to burn it.
  5. Stir in the lemon zest, lemon juice, butter, dried thyme, and paprika. Allow the butter to melt and the flavors to meld together, stirring occasionally.
  6. Return the chicken thighs to the skillet, skin side up, and spoon the lemon garlic butter sauce over them.
  7. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken thighs are cooked through and reach an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C).
  8. While the chicken is baking, prepare the green beans. In a separate skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  9. Add the trimmed green beans to the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and sauté for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are tender-crisp.
  10. Once the chicken is done, remove the skillet from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
  11. Serve the lemon garlic butter chicken thighs alongside the sautéed green beans. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley. Enjoy your delicious meal!
