  1. In a shallow dish, soak chicken thighs in soy sauce. Squeeze juice from the lemons into the dish. Let stand for at least 10 minutes.
  2. While the chicken is marinating, melt butter in a large skillet or wok. Add garlic and fry until tender. Add chicken thighs and cook on medium high until the juices run clear, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Serve over white rice with pan drippings.

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 medi...

These were easy and my husband liked them, but I wasn't thrilled. The soy sauce and garlic gave a good taste, but I think it needs some tweaking. I did add a bit of honey to the sauce as the chi...

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.
