Food Recipes Lemon Butter Chicken Thigh

I’m trying this recipe tonight. I absolutely love how easy it is and that I usually have all of these ingredients on hand. I have a 2 year old, a 7 month old, no time, and a very hungry man. Wasn’t sure what I was going to do with these chicken thighs until I stumbled across this post. Thankfully I had all ingredients minus the FRESH thyme sprigs. I do have thyme so hopefully it is still flavorful. Thanks!
