Country Bob Chicken Thighs for Two

Bill and I had never used Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce until May of this year. We were at a restaurant in southern Missoui tht had bottles of the sauce on the tables. Bill tried it and promptly asked me to find out where to buy it. Now I buy a family size bottle every other month for the two of us.

This five ingredient, oven roasted, chicken thigh recipe will provide you with some golden brown, homemade happiness on a plate! AND it is husband tested and approved.

My busy day recipe will yield two or three servings; eat one thigh tonight and eat one thigh for tomorrow's lunch.

  • 4 bone in chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup Country Bob's Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp salted butter
  • 3 tsp. lemon juice
  • Rainbow medley ground peppercorns (pink, white, green, and black peppercorn mix)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Grease a one quart casserole dish with shortening
  • Place 1/4 cup of Country Bob's Sauce and lemon juice in a small bowl.
  • Mix well with a whisk. Set aside.
  • Place butter in a shallow bowl.
  • Microwave 15-30 sec. to melt the butter.
  • Dip chicken thighs into the melted butter.
  • Place chicken thighs into the one quart casserole dish.
  • Grind peppercorn blend onto both sides of the chicken thighs.
  • Have chicken thighs skin side down.
  • Spoon lemon juice mixture over the four thighs.
  • Place into a 350 degree oven and bake for 30 minutes
  • Turn chicken thighs over, skin side up.
  • Spoon sauce over tops occasionally until the chicken is done.
  • Bake for another 30 minutes,or until the skin is golden brown.
No meat thermometer? Try this test:  Use a dinner fork and pierce the thigh close to the bone. If the chicken thigh slides easily off the fork , it is done. 

Yield: 2-3 servings
