Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Thighs

You can never go wrong with the classics and this is one such recipe. I love this recipe so so much coz it is so easy and incredibly delicious. I can bet your mouth is watering already!!

Skin on bone in chicken thighs, rubbed with olive oil, my secret chicken spice, blasted at 450F for the perfect crispy outside and succulent juicy, oh so unbelievably juicy inside. I always like to throw in baby carrots, red onions and garlic pods to give the base a touch of caramelized sweetness and that beautiful rustic look

Under 40 mins with minimal effort, this recipe is here to win!! Bonus- its low carb. I’m sure you cant wait to make it, so, shall we?

You’ll need:

4 chicken thighs, bone in, skin on

Handful baby carrots

Half red onion thinly sliced

2 tbsp olive oil

4-5 garlic pods

Spice rub – 1 tsp each of salt, pepper, cumin powder, oregano, thyme, paprika


Preheat the oven to 450F

Trim any excess chicken thigh skin on the back of the thighs and place it in a baking tray. Also add onions and carrots in the tray

Add 2 tbsp olive oil and using your hands, evenly coat the thighs and veggies

Now add the spice rub and rub evenly to coat

Toss in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 mins

Bring out the tray, coat the chicken top skin with the juices released using a silicon brush and broil in the oven for 60-90 secs. This step is imp to make the chicken skin crispy

Unbelievably delicious, protein rich and under 45 mins meal, that will leave you asking for more. Serve with your favorite salad or some freshly baked potato wedge
