  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs


  • Preheat the broiler. Line a 9-inch x 13-inch broiling pan with foil and set aside.
  • Melt butter with the garlic in the microwave, then mix in Worcestershire sauce and black pepper.
  • Pat chicken dry. Remove the skins if desired, or leave on for a crispy exterior. Arrange in the broiling pan, skin side up. Brush with the butter mixture, reserving some for basting.
  • Broil for about 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until juices run clear, turning occasionally and basting with remaining butter mixture (use a clean brush each time to avoid contamination). Finish with skins up so they can get crispy.
  • Let chicken rest for 5-10 minutes, then garnish with fresh minced parsley and serve.
