Organic chicken thighs are cooked alongside blackberries and aromatic herbs to create a dish that is full of flavor.
What you need:
4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
Sea salt and black pepper
1 tablespoon preferred high-heat oil
1 cup frozen blackberries, thawed
2 tablespoons butter
1 garlic clove, peeled and smashed
6 sprigs fresh thyme
Preheat oven to 425℉. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Warm oil in a large cast iron skillet. Add chicken breasts skin side down. Flip thighs after 6-8 minutes and add blackberries to the skillet. Place in oven for 20 minutes. Remove skillet and scoop out excess fat. Push thighs to the side and add butter, thyme, lemon and garlic so that the butter pools on one side. Next, use a spoon to baste chicken with herb butter. Plate and drizzle herb butter over chicken.
