  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Arrange chicken thighs on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Combine garlic salt, onion salt, oregano, thyme, paprika, and pepper together in a small container with a lid. Close the lid and shake container until spices are thoroughly mixed. Sprinkle spice mixture liberally over chicken thighs.
  4. Bake chicken in the preheated oven until skin is crispy, thighs are no longer pink at the bone, and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you wish to broil the chicken for the last part of cooking, do so for only 1 to 2 minutes and watch carefully as the spices burn very quickly!

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...

I saw this recipe and read all of the positive reviews, and figured I would give it a try. I usually prefer grilled chicken, so when I read that this oven chicken would turn out crispy, and also...

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 w...

Delicious! Skin came out very crispy :) I didn't have onion salt so I used onion powder instead.

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, ...

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 re...

I followed the recipe as close as I could. I always try to, at least the first time. However, I don't use or keep onion salt or garlic salt, so I used onion & garlic POWDERS + a little table sal...
