Baked chicken thighs and rice is a great dish for everyday or anytime you have family and friends over for a meal.  You could make this recipe using any chicken parts and you could double this recipe.   This makes a good weeknight meal and is quick and easy to throw together on a busy day.  You might also like our recipe for Crispy Baked Chicken Breasts.

6 to 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (You could make this with any parts of the chicken or even a whole chicken)
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
Spray a casserole dish.  Mix all ingredients except chicken together in a microwave bowl and microwave on high for about one minute or until butter melts.  Mix well and pour over chicken.  Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes, turning chicken half way through baking.
Serve over brown rice.  Enjoy        
I use instant brown rice made according to the box directions for the microwave.  Then, I put the rice in the baking dish and let it soak up the sauce the chicken was cooked in.  Place chicken on top and serve.

  1. Can I make this recipe in a crock pot?

  2. Melanie C Ernst says:

    Do you have to use thighs, we prefer white meat in my house.

  3. Can I use chicken thighs with bones and skin? Would i need to change the baking times? Thank you.

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Yes, you can Amber. I think the time will be ok as stated. Just kind of watch to make sure they don’t burn.
