For the Creamy Garlic Herb Sauce


For the chicken thigh bake: 

  1. About 30 minute prior to cooking, let the chicken thighs come to room temp on the counter. Let them do this on a paper towel lined plate or cutting board to absorb moisture.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400F. 
  3. Pat the chicken thighs dry again with a paper towel and then arrange them to one side on a large baking sheet. Add the vegetables next to them. Drizzle everything with the oil.
  4. Mix together all of the remaining ingredients (salt, pepp, herbs and spices) and sprinkle liberally all over the sheet pan. Make sure all of the chicken and veggies are covered with oil and seasoning. 
  5. Bake the chicken and veggies for 28-35 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken thigh reaches 165F internally at the thickest point. 
  6. Serve the chicken with the veggies alone, over rice or over lettuce. Drizzle on the sauce and enjoy! 

For the sauce: 

  1. Using a blender, small food process or or immersion blender, blend all of the ingredients together until smooth and the sauce starts to take on a lovely green color.
  2. Taste to check seasoning & add more if desired.
  3. Pour into a bowl or in a jar with a lid. Let the sauce sit for at least 10 minutes before serving to let the flavors marry.
  4. Use right away as a dip, dressing or sauce or store in the fridge in a jar or bowl with a lid.
