bone-in chicken thighs with skin
ground black pepper
Delicious! Skin came out very crispy :) I didn't have onion salt so I used onion powder instead.
Followed recipe exactly. Thighs were crispy and tasty. Don't know how with these ingredients the thighs become crispy, but they do. Easy recipe.
I have to admit to using boneless skinless thighs, but if I'd done it with skin I'd have had to taken it off anyway. So here you go. Wonderful way to season chicken and use a heavier side dish to make a really nice meal. We enjoyed our dinner a lot. We had the Foreplay Pasta with Brie, Basil, and Garlic from this site along with the chicken. Thanks a lot for our dinner, Nicole.
Just as the title says crispy and tender!Love this recipe and I didn't change a thing!Only thing I did do was loosen the skin a little to sprinkle the seasoning right onto the meat.I will make this again and again!Thanks for the recipe.
Awesome recipe !!! I made it with only 6 thighs using the same amount of seasoning (because I always season heavily) and it came out great !!! Also added a little cayenne and cumin . Like the recipe says , crispy !! I also put them on a baking rack so air could circulate all around . I love using the thighs because #1 they're inexpensive and #2 they're more flavorful . This is now in regular in my house !!!
I currently have a broken right wrist(I'm right handed) with a cast all the way to my elbow and I made this the other night and the recipe is spot on. I baked for 58min and broiled for 1min. I will likely dial back the paprika a bit next time but my wife was very impressed. We are now affectionately calling this "one arm chicken".
Cooked the thighs, boneless and bone in plus breast. Didn't make enough dry marinade so used some cajun in addition. Family loved it. Simple, fast, good!
I only had 5 thighs but I kept the full amount of seasoning. I did as some had mentioned about adding some of the seasoning right to the chicken(under the skin). Came out wonderfully and yes, very crispy. However, after 1/2hr I drained the fat off so the skin wasn't sitting in the fat and was allowed to crisp on the sides also.
