How do I get the chocolate chip cookies thick and chewy?

Chilled butter: chilling is key! When you use chilled fat and chill the dough, it inhibits spread. Then the cookies become thick in size.

Generous scooping: when scooping dough to be bake, be generous! At least 1/2 cup if not more

Equal parts white sugar and brown sugar: brown sugar has molasses, an inverted sugar, which helps with flavor and chewiness.
