Step 1Season the chicken thighs with lots of salt and pepper, then set them aside.
Step 2Heat the oil and the butter over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the chicken and cook until nicely browned, about 3 minutes a side. Remove the chicken from the skillet with a slotted spoon. Reduce the heat to medium and add the garlic to the skillet. Cook until the garlic just begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth to the skillet, then place the chicken over the garlic, cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Spoon the garlic over the chicken and then pour the pan juices over both.
