This is a simple recipe, perfect for busy nights. The spices really bring out a great flavor and the thighs are so tender they fall off the bone! You can make the Brussels Sprouts I put up last week as a side, just leave out the smoked sausage.

8 bone-in chicken thighs

1/4 teaspoon onion salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1/4 teaspoon chili pepper

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. I use coconut oil cooking spray. Add all spices to a small container with a lid and shake until thoroughly mixed together. Sprinkle mixture over chicken thighs. Bake until thighs are crispy, it took about 1 hour. You can always test it with a thermometer inserted near the bone, it should read 165 degrees.  This is a great low carb, gluten free meal your family will enjoy!

  1. I found it to have a great flavor and it was very easy to make! I definitely will be making this again.

  2. Made this tonight and it was great.

  3. How long would you cook this with boneless thighs?

  4. I added red pepper flakes as well to spice it up a bit.. … I also turned the oven to 475° for 20 minutes and then down to 350°to crisp the skin … not sure how this will work because they’re still a little frozen and I have 12 thighs packed into my glass pan… I’ll watch it to make sure they’re not burning !

  5. Is this spicy?

    Do you bake the chicken with skin on? And do you cover it?
