To make a delicious chicken dish, preheat your oven to 400°F. Season chicken thighs with poultry seasoning and salt, then sear them in a skillet until both sides are lightly golden but not fully cooked.
Remove the chicken, add butter and cook potato wedges until golden. Add white wine, garlic, lemon juice, and oregano, simmer until reduced, then return chicken to the pan, cover, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle peas around the chicken and broil for 1-2 minutes until the skin is crispy. Let it rest for 5 minutes before serving with lemon slices and fresh oregano for garnish if desired.
