  • Step 1

    Start by prepping your ingredients: Half the lemon, juice one half and slice the other. Mince the garlic.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, and oregano. Whisk the mixture until it is well combined.

  • Step 3

    Add the chicken thighs to the bowl, ensuring they are well coated with the mixture. Cover the bowl, place it in the refrigerator and leave it to marinate.

  • Step 4

    Slice the zucchini into half moons and chop the ends off the asparagus.

  • Step 5

    Preheat your oven to 220°C (428°F).

  • Step 6

    In a large, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, warm the remaining olive oil.

  • Step 7

    Season both sides of the marinated chicken with salt and pepper, then place the chicken skin-side down in the skillet. Pour in the remaining marinade.

  • Step 8

    Sear the chicken until the skin becomes golden and crispy, which should take approximately 10 minutes.

  • Step 9

    Flip the chicken, then add the asparagus, zucchini, and lemon slices to the skillet.

  • Step 10

    Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and cook until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the vegetables are tender, approximately 15 minutes.

  • Step 11

    Carefully remove the skillet from the oven, and serve the meal while it's hot.
