Servings: 4 servings
- 4 chicken thighs
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup kumquats
- 1 red onion sliced into wedges
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- salt and pepper
- fresh basil for garnishing
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
Place the chicken thighs, sliced kumquats and red onion in a cast iron or oven safe dish. Drizzle olive oil over everything and use your fingers to make sure everything is coated, including both sides of the chicken.
Season the chicken with the dried basil, salt and pepper.
Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for 40-50 minutes or until cooked through.
If you'd like the top of the chicken more golden, turn the top broiler on for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
