"A very tasty and tangy, yet somewhat fattening meal. This chicken goes great over rice."

garlic, peeled and chopped

Greasy.....No kidding! The chicken was flavorful, but I wouldn't use the drippings over rice unless you want to hear your arteries clogging....and this is from a person who likes to use drippings. That was too greasy even for me.
I have made this twice and as written it is too salty and with the skin it is way too greasy for me. But it is called greasy chicken. Tonight I took the skin off, cut the butter to 1 tbl., used lite soy sauce and added a squeeze of 1/4 fresh orange in place of the other tbl of lemon juice.(sometime too much lemon juice starts to cook the chicken and orange seemed more mild) I let the thighs sit in soy and 1 tbl lemon juice about 1/2 hour. Melted butter, added garlic, then added the thighs with however much marinade was on them. I let it cook over med heat and they sort of simmered for about 25 min.(I turned a few times) The sauce cooked down and I added the little bit of marinade left. I added a little honey in because it was still a little too salty for me. They turned out very sticky and good.
For this recipe, I use boneless, skinless thighs cut into chunks. After marinating the chicken, I add the sauteed garlic to the mix, spread on a plate (including all of the marinade) and microwave for 8 minutes. Easier, faster and doesn't burn.
We love any recipe with garlic so this one was greeted with enthusiasm at our table. Made good leftovers. The drippings are a little "greasy" as promised but tasty!
This is a GREAT recipe! I used lemon juice and garlic powder instead. Added chopped onion when I melted the butter. Cooked the chicken in a wok in all of its marinade for 25 minutes over medium heat as suggested and also added a bit of honey to offset some of the saltiness, also as suggested by other reviewers. Added half a bag of frozen peas and carrots during the last 7 minutes of cooking, probably should have put them in a bit sooner, but this dinner turned out AWESOME! Served over rice. Thanks for posting this, Gary
For what it is, this is a really good recipe. It was very down home, comforting. I used boneless, skinless thighs and added just a smidge of italian seasoning to spark it up, and both my husband and I were happy with the meal. And NO, you should NOT add the marinade.
For some reason the soy sauce became a big ball of yuck burned in my pan. I might try again (the chicken was good) put not over medium-high heat (at least not on my stove).
This is a good recipe when you don't have a lot of time. My whole family enjoys it. It has a great flavor.
