Recipe Notes

Tips for making this Easy Chicken Thigh Recipe:

  1. After you place the chicken thighs in the baking dish, don't pour the liquid over them.  You don't want to disturb the salt and pepper
  2. Try to use organic chicken broth as you can honestly taste the difference
  3. Use a dry white wine and not something sweet like a chardonnay
  4. Use freshly squeezed lemon juice
  5. Use as many capers as you want
  6. You can also use as many cloves of garlic as you like.  My thought is, the more the merrier
