Lemon and garlic give this hearty dish Mediterranean flavor. Let the chicken marinate overnight for the best result. You may substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the thighs but reduce the cooking time by 15 minutes. This one-dish meal can be made in just 15 minutes. Marinating the chicken in a zip-top plastic bag makes the clean-up extremely easy. Serve this chicken dish with mixed salad greens topped with feta cheese, roasted red peppers and a Greek vinaigrette dressing.
