  1. Place the chicken thighs between 2 pieces of cling film and bash to flatten with a rolling pin. Fill a bowl with warm water. Mix in a pinch of salt. Place your chicken thighs in for 15 minutes. This step is to tenderise the chicken but can be skipped if need be.

  2. Add the butter and oil to a large oven proof pan over medium/high heat. Add chicken, and sear 2 minutes on both sides. Set aside.

  3. In the same pan, add garlic, and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in chicken stock, lemon juice and herbs. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until the sauce has slightly thickened, about 3-5 minutes. Return chicken to the pan.

  4. Place into oven at Gas Mark 3 and roast for 25-30 minutes.
