- 1.5 lb. chicken thighs (approx. 4); bone-in, skin on
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 425°. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, then place an oven-safe wire rack on top and spray it with nonstick spray.
In a small bowl, combine the baking powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, oregano, salt, and pepper.
Pat the chicken dry (the drier you can get it, then crispier it'll get!) then place it into a large bowl. Pour the seasonings over top and use your hands to completely coat the chicken.
Place the chicken on top of the wire rack, then place the baking sheet into the oven and bake the chicken for 35-40 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and wait 5 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
*Calories are per chicken thigh and are an estimation
*Bone-in vs. boneless chicken thighs: Both bake at 425° but bone-in will take about 40 minutes, whereas boneless will bake in about 20 minutes.
*Make sure you use a parchment-lined, rimmed baking sheet! That way, the chicken juices don't spill over and instead fall onto the parchment. It's also VERY helpful to use an oven-safe wire rack on top of that, which will ensure the bottom of the chicken doesn't get soggy.
