Our family loves these chicken thighs. I make them 2-3 times a month. They are so easy, so full of flavor and can be served with many different sides. We have even lovingly nicknamed my daughter ‘vulture’ because whenever there is crispy chicken skin around, she will be right there to snag some 🙂 Truth be told, we all do it!

What You Need:

Let’s Bake Chicken:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400′
  2. Trim any excess skin off of the chicken and pat dry with a paper towel
  3. Add the chicken to a bowl with the oil and seasoning, toss to coat (I use my sugar-free chicken spice rub)
  4. Place the chicken on the rack over the baking sheet (skin side up) and bake for 45-60 minutes (time depends on the size of the thighs – internal temp should be 165’F)
  5. Once chicken is cooked through, brush with juices from the pan and enjoy!

What to Serve with It:

These are some of our favorite side dishes to serve with these baked chicken thighs. We even love to chop them up and serve them in a salad.
