The aroma that will fill your house while you are making this dish is unbelievable! This chicken is made with a perfect combination of flavors for a juicy and flavorful dinner. It is so easy to make too and will take you about an hour for prep and baking. Minimal effort and most of the time just goes into the baking. You can serve this chicken with a side of potatoes or veggies. I also added some feta cheese on top of the tomatoes and veggies after it was cooked. Feta was amazing with this dish.

You will need an oven proof skillet or an oven proof baking dish. If you use a baking dish, you don’t have to alter any time or temperature. Time for baking would depend on the size of your chicken thighs. If you are using large and plumpy ones, you would have to make sure that they had enough time to bake all the way through.

Roasted Chicken Thighs with Tomatoes and Mushrooms
  • 4 chicken thighs, bone in
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • Juice from a ¼ of a lemon
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • salt
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes (or more if you wish)
  • 1 cup of cut mushrooms (or more if you wish)
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • salt
  1. Place the chicken thighs into a large mixing bowl. Add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, grated garlic, thyme and salt. Mix well so that the chicken is evenly coated. Marinade for about 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425. Rub an oven-safe skillet with some olive oil and place the chicken thighs in the skillet, skin down. Pour the remaining marinade over the top.
  3. Cook the chicken in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. Mix the tomatoes and mushrooms with olive oil and some salt. Flip the chicken thighs and add tomatoes and mushrooms. Bake for another 15-20 minutes.
  4. Set the oven to broil for about a minute to brown the top to golden.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe! I made it tonight and the hubs LOVED it! I appreciate how simple it was to prepare. I really like mushrooms and put in a ton extra!

    Made the roasted chicken with tomatoes and mushrooms for dinner tonight. Absolutely delicious and very easy prep. I used skinless organic thighs, without bone. Roasted in a cast iron skillet n the oven. Made organic orzo and dished the chicken over the orzo. I doubled the recipe, and there were no left overs! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

      Yes, Brooke, It would definitely work with chicken breast and dry thyme. Dark meat is just juicer and more flavorful, but breast will work too.

    This recipe is everything. I made it earlier in the evening and it made the house smell amazing & it was a hit! Thank you for sharing!

    I made this tonight–fabulous. My husband is not a big poultry fan so it is difficult finding chicken recipes he likes other than it barbecued. He enjoyed this very much!

    I made this tonight, and it was a big hit with my family. I did not have tomatoes on hand, so next time I will try it that way. A delicious meal for a cold winter night, paired with tricolor pearled couscous and broccoli. Thank you!

    I tried this last night and it was a HIT!!! And oh so easy!! . It is not spicy but has lots of flavors. I served it with jasmine rice and a Caesar salad. Also I didn’t have any cherry tomatoes but I did have roama tomatoes so I diced tomatoes about 1 cup.


  1. […] Roasted Chicken Thighs with Tomatoes and Mushrooms via Will Cook for Smiles – Simple and full of flavor. Balsamic vinegar, fresh thyme, and a hint of feta take this easy chicken dish to a whole other level. We eat a lot of chicken and I love new ways to prepare inexpensive cuts! […]
