A new recipe for a chicken dinner is always welcome, and this one hits all the marks. It comes together in just over a half hour in one pot with a short and simple recipe list. Can you say “Winner winner chicken dinner?” You’ll start the chicken thighs out on the stove top to make sure the skin gets perfectly crispy, and then nestle them with onions, garlic, and radishes for a quick roast in the oven. Finally, a knob of butter, a glug of lemon juice, and a shower of chives finishes the dish off, and you’ll serve with ample slices of toasted baguette for sopping up the juices.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large oven-safe skillet (not nonstick) over medium-high. Add 4 chicken thighs, skin side down; cook, undisturbed, until deep golden brown, about 8 minutes. Flip and cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Pour fat out of skillet. Repeat with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and 4 chicken thighs; do not wipe skillet clean after second batch.

  • Add onion and garlic to skillet. Cook over medium-high, stirring often, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in radishes and nestle chicken into mixture. Transfer skillet to oven and roast until a thermometer inserted in thickest portion of chicken registers 165°F, 15 to 17 minutes.

  • Transfer chicken and radish mixture to a platter. Return skillet to medium-high. Add broth and cook, stirring and scraping bottom of skillet to loosen browned bits, until reduced by half, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in butter, lemon juice, chives, and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Spoon sauce over chicken and radish mixture. Serve with baguette slices.
