  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken thighs bone in, with skin
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 pears sliced
  • 1 yellow onion sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ¾ cup reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • zest and juice of half a lemon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. As the oil heats, season the chicken with salt and black pepper. 

  2. Add the chicken thighs to the skillet and sear for 5 minutes per side. They will be lightly browned at this point but not cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a platter and set aside.

  3. Add the sliced pears and onion to the skillet. Cook while stirring for 5 minutes. Add the garlic during the last 2 minutes. Deglaze with the chicken or vegetable broth. Toss in the lemon zest as well. 

  4. Scrape any fond collected at the bottom and bring the broth to a gentle simmer. Return the chicken to the skillet then place into the oven to roast for 15 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches a safe 165 degrees F.

  5. Remove from the oven and drizzle with lemon juice. Plate and serve alone or with one of your favorite side dishes.
