6 - 8 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs

1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Optional: ground paprika and/or granulated garlic


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 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 one hour, 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. Enjoy!
