Garlic Butter Chicken Thighs & Green Beans

During a time where we’re sheltering in place and don’t have a lot of our typical social events or small joys to get us through the week, decadent chicken dinners are real winners, especially if they can be made with ingredients we’ve stocked the freezer with.

When using frozen green beans, either defrost or partially cook them before adding them to the skillet, or steam them fully and toss them in the garlic butter once the chicken is cooked.

I love the method of deboning skin-on chicken thighs in order to get the crispy chicken skin but not have the bone on your plate.
