Chicken and sage are one of the best combinations, in my opinion. That's why these Garlic and Sage Chicken Thighs are such a hit! They are also super crispy, juicy, and Whole30!
I go through stages where I get bored eating chicken breasts over and over. When I am getting bored with chicken breasts, my go-to is chicken thighs. Chicken thighs have so much more flavor and don't dry out like chicken breasts. And bone-in chicken thighs are even better! My husband, always requests that I use chicken thighs over chicken breasts.
One of the reasons I love this recipe, other than it's just so dang good, is that I can make a big batch of these and use the rest for leftovers. Making a big batch of these, shredding the chicken, and using it to make my Whole30 BLT Chicken Salad is awesome!
Cooking these Garlic and Sage Chicken Thighs is super easy! One tip that I have is to make sure you pat dry the skin before rubbing the ghee mixture on them, it helps it stay.
