This is a simple dish for a busy night.  The flavors are wonderful together and we love the freshness of the lemon combined with the garlic.  Delicious!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
-2 Tbs butter
-4 chicken thighs, skin-on, bone-in
-salt and pepper
-4 garlic cloves, minced

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 F.
In a large oven proof pot heat the oil and melt the butter.  While that's happening, score the chicken thighs and season on both sides with salt and pepper.  Place chicken in hot oil mixture and sear on both sides until nice and golden brown.
Add the garlic and pepper flakes and cook for 30 seconds.  Stir in the broth and lemon juice. Mix and bring to a simmer.  Let it simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the cream, stir and place in preheated oven.  Bake for 15 minutes.
