Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 lb. skin on, bone-in chicken thighs
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 1/2 cup(s) fresh cranberries
- 1/3 cup(s) balsamic vinegar
- 2 clove(s) garlic, minced
- 1/4 oz. rosemary sprigs (about 6 sprigs)
- 2 tsp. thyme leaves
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 whole orange, zested
- 1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a large ovenproof skillet over medium high heat, heat olive oil. Add chicken skin side-down and cook until the skin is golden and crispy, about 4 minutes. Remove chicken from heat and place on plate, skin side-up.
