To start, brush the bottom of a large, ovenproof pan (I used a cast iron) with two tablespoons of olive oil. Place six chicken thighs in the pan and season them with salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 15 minutes at 375°F.

Meanwhile, melt five tablespoons of butter in a small sauce pan on low to medium heat. Add five finely chopped cloves of garlic and a tablespoon of dried rosemary, and cook until fragrant — about three to five minutes. Then remove from the heat.

After baking the chicken for 15 minutes, remove and discard half of the rendered fat from the skillet, pour the butter mixture on top of the chicken and place it back into the oven for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.

Once the chicken has cooked and is browned and crispy on the top, remove from the heat and place aluminum foil on top until ready to serve.
