Baked Chicken Thighs:


  • 4-6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 400ᄚF (200ᄚC).
  2. Prepare Chicken Thighs:

    • In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and black pepper.
    • Rub the spice mixture all over the chicken thighs, ensuring they are well coated.
  4. Arrange in Baking Dish:
    • Place the seasoned chicken thighs in a baking dish, skin side up.
  5. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165ᄚF (74ᄚC) and the skin is crispy.
  6. Broil (Optional):
    • If you desire an extra crispy skin, you can turn on the broiler for the last 2-3 minutes of cooking. Keep a close eye to prevent burning.
  7. Rest and Garnish:
    • Allow the chicken thighs to rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
  8. Serve:
    • Serve the baked chicken thighs with your favorite side dishes like roasted vegetables, rice, or a fresh salad.
