    1 hr 10 mins

    1 hr 25 mins


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Arrange chicken thighs in a roasting pan; season with salt and pepper. Scatter onion over and around chicken. Top chicken with basil, garlic, and rosemary. Pour chicken broth into pan and evenly distribute carrots around the chicken. Cover pan with aluminum foil.
  3. Cook in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove aluminum foil and continue cooking until chicken is browned, 10 to 15 more minutes.

Very nice. I love recipes like this because you can really use it as a base and add whatever veggies you have. I used some fresh picked green beans along with the basil and onion. It's great that it doesn't need any kind of fat or oil added. Would also be excellent with mashed 'taters. Thanks for the recipe!

I always prepare a new recipe as written the first time. I have to say I think 60 mins in that hot of an oven is too long. Removing the foil for 10 min was not enough to brown the skin, so the chicken was overcooked and pale. Next time I will shorten the total cooking time and remove the foil sooner or perhaps put the chicken under the broiler for a couple of minutes.

Quick, easy and very tasty. We doubled the garlic and onion because that's just the type of family we are!

Love a dinner dish that you can quickly prep, place in the oven, and then relax with a glass of wine while it cooks to perfection! Easy meal with good flavor that makes the kitchen smell great.

Excellent! Used fresh herbs and trimmed the thighs of all fat.

This recipe was simple to follow and was very tasty. I had all of the ingredients and added pear tomatoes. I also only had dry Rosemary. Like others suggested I baked it for 40 mins and baked for the remainder 20 uncovered. I did not brown the chicken prior to baking. My family had seconds. Delicious!

Loved this easy dish! So simple. I doubled the number of thighs as someone suggested and it turned out great. I did not brown the chicken prior to baking but took off foil 20 min. before it was done and it browned nicely. I have added this recipe to my meal plan!
