Juicy oven baked chicken thighs are possible with almost no effort at all.
- 4 lbs chicken thighs
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking tray or half sheet pan with foil and place all the chicken pieces on it, skin side down.
- Sprinkle each piece of chicken with salt and pepper and flip each piece skin side up. Drizzle about a teaspoon of oil over the skin on each piece of chicken and rub lightly to coat. Sprinkle again with salt and pepper.
- Bake for 55-65 minutes, until most of the fat has rendered out of the chicken and the skin is golden brown and crisp. Remove from the oven and let rest about 5 minutes before serving.
