  • 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).

Footnotes

  • 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!

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.

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.

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