Baked Chicken Thighs
Chicken thighs are heavy in our dinner rotation throughout the week. I think they are so underrated! Thighs are much more flavorful than chicken breasts, and I think the boys prefer them as well. One chicken thigh give you about 28 grams of protein! One of the easiest ways to prepare them is baked in the oven. We usually eat them with steamed vegetables and some kind of starchy side. The boys love to eat them diced up with white rice and ketchup. Below is a recipe that I adapted from www.allrecipes.com
- 1 package boneless chicken thighs (I prefer boneless because they're easier for me, and they seem to cook faster)
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp onion salt
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Olive oil spray
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- Spray a glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and/or line with foil and spray the foil
- Combine seasoning in a bowl and mix together
- Cover both sides of the chicken with the seasoning and place in baking dish
- Cook for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
- I use a meat thermometer to ensure that the chicken is cooked through.
