  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Arrange chicken thighs in a roasting pan; season with salt and pepper. Scatter onion over and around chicken. Top chicken with basil, garlic, and rosemary. Pour chicken broth into pan and evenly distribute carrots around the chicken. Cover pan with aluminum foil.
  3. Cook in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove aluminum foil and continue cooking until chicken is browned, 10 to 15 more minutes.

Excellent! Used fresh herbs and trimmed the thighs of all fat.

Loved this easy dish! So simple. I doubled the number of thighs as someone suggested and it turned out great. I did not brown the chicken prior to baking but took off foil 20 min. before it wa...

Good recipe

Unbelievably delicious! I always have a hard timebwith chicken and this turns out so good! Thanks for the recipe. I added a rub my husband made and let the chicken marinade in it for 3 hours wit...

I have become a fan of thighs over breasts now. It nearly melted in my mouth it was so tender and moist. I cut salt by using homemade chicken stock (plus added flavor) and I used only dried herb...
