The flavor of the dish would be completely different. As an option, you can add chicken thighs for the last 10 minutes of cooking to warm them up. - Alena

I instantly knew this was going to be amazing because garlic, lemon, oregano, and rosemary go together so well! My husband liked it so much that he even asked me to pack him the leftovers for lunch the next day.

One of my favorites

I found this recipe last Spring during the "lockdown." I've made some adjustments, but it's become a favorite meal in our house. A lot of other recipes I tried used chicken broth, but this recipe is the best I've found. I use 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs since it's only 2 of us, but I like leftovers for lunch. I also omit the rosemary (not a fan), use slightly less garlic, 1 tsp. of oregano and salt and 1/2 tsp. of pepper and add extra fresh lemon juice. It comes out amazing every time. My husband who is a picky eater even likes this dish!
