Protein: Poultry
Cut: Chicken Thighs
Course: Main Course
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 8 (about 3 pounds) chicken thighs bone-in, skin-on
  • 2 tablespoons oil, for cooking (we like avocado oil)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 -3 teaspoons optional spices


  • Heat the oven to 425°F. Bring the chicken out of the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking and pat it dry.
  • Place chicken in a large bowl and drizzle with oil, salt, pepper, and any optional spices. Stir to coat. Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet (don't crowd it).
  • Place in oven and roast for 30-35 minutes, until the chicken registers an internal temperature of 160°F. Turn on the broiler and place pan under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes to crisp up the skin.
  • Remove chicken from oven and rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
