Butter Baked Chicken with Garlic Lemon Aioli


On nights when we want to do something simple for dinner, we often make baked chicken thighs because it’s easy and the whole family loves it.  It’s very similar to a whole roast chicken except we just use chicken thighs to avoid the trouble of carving a whole chicken.  All we do is rub the chicken with some salt and pepper and into the oven it goes.

Because this simple recipe produces such amazing flavors, it got me thinking if we could build on it and make it even better.  We combined different elements from other recipes and came up with this simple n’ easy Butter Baked Chicken with Garlic Lemon Aioli that’s absolutely delicious!!

For this recipe, you can use any cut of chicken you prefer.  Our favorite is chicken thighs because it’s, in our opinion, the juiciest part of the chicken and we’re not fans of dry chicken!

Speaking of juicy chicken, what takes this recipe to the next level is the garlic lemon aioli sauce that’s so addicting that sometimes I don’t know if I’m eating chicken with the sauce or the sauce with the chicken!

Either way, to make this dish is super simple!  We start with prepping the chicken thighs by seasoning it with some good ol salt and black pepper, and from there brush some melted butter and throw it all in the oven.

While we for the chicken to bake, we put together the simple garlic aioli by combining some Kewpie Mayo, grated garlic and lemon juice.  We prefer to use Kewpie Mayo since we think it adds more depth to the sauce and prefer it over American style mayo, but you can substitute for your Hellsman or Best Foods if that’s all you have.

Also, keep in mind to actually grate the garlic and not mince or chop it.  Garlic is a unique herb in that the more you express it, the more oils you release from the garlic and the stronger the flavors get.  And the best way to express the oils is by grating it with a grater.

Now once all that’s done, just dip your baked chicken into that delish garlic aioli sauce and stick a fork in it! Hope you enjoy!
