If you want a chicken recipe in which the sauce is a bit thinner and less cheese-heavy but still want something fairly creamy, and you appreciate the zesty flavor given by a little lemon juice (and the extra savory flavor that leaving the skin on gives the chicken), this Baked Lemon Butter Chicken is an excellent choice. You can have it prepped and cooked in under an hour. One has to admire chicken for its versatility. And though there are plenty of recipes for boneless, skinless chicken that I love, you can add a lot of flavor to the right recipe by leaving the skin on.
I thought adding spinach to this recipe was a nice touch, but that delicious lemon butter sauce would also make for a nice topping for any crisp green vegetables you might like to have on the side. I think that this chicken also goes nicely with some wild rice.

Quick tip: You can use chicken breasts instead of thighs, if that’s what you prefer.
