Simple is best when it comes to these chicken thighs. The meat really speaks for itself and only a couple extra ingredients are required. This sauce goes well with any other cut of chicken or other types of meat, especially fish. Use a different cut of chicken, such as cutlets, to keep the points and fat down.

How Do You Make Garlic Butter Chicken Thighs
Start by sprinkling just a little bit of garlic salt. Alternatively, use salt and garlic powder. If you like it spicier, add just a pinch of ground red pepper.
Heat a medium sized pan over medium high heat. Add the margarine and minced garlic and cook until the margarine has melted, about 3 minutes.
Add the chicken thighs and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side. This is when you can get the skin as crispy as you would like. Be careful not to burn it though. While cooking, move the chicken thighs around a little to absorb all of the melted margarine.
They will look something like this, more or less crispy, depending on how you like it.
Place in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, until fully cooked. I like using a meat thermometer that is oven safe, to pull out the chicken right when it hits 165 degrees. You do not want it over or under cooked. You can order my thermometer here, it works for the crock pot, grill, air fryer and oven.
That's it! A delicious meal in under 30 minutes.
