Recipe Notes

  • Cooking time will also be affected by how big your chicken pieces are and if you use legs, wings, thighs or breasts.
  • Internal temperature of the chicken should be at 165 degrees F before serving.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the melted butter, Italian seasoning, parsley and garlic in a bowl. Set aside. 
  2. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet or ovenproof skillet. Season the chicken with the paprika and salt and pepper. Cook the chicken in the hot oil until well browned on all sides, about 2 to 3 minutes
  3. At this point you can transfer the chicken to a baking dish or cook in the skillet. Pour the butter mixture over the chicken. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes.

Wow! Can't wait to try this. There is nothing better than fresh lemon with melted butter so I may sneak that in. The fresh garlic is just going to take it over the top
