basic baked chicken thighs {updated}

basic baked chicken thighs

Real life: this was the best picture I could get the other night because I got home from work late (hence dinner was running late), Evelyn was crying (I think we have a teething baby), and I just didn’t feel like I could get my act together.

I mean, it’s not bad.  I just had different visions of it.  Oh well.  It is still better than the first pictures I ever took of chicken thighs, which is the whole point of this exercise.  (Goodness, I feel embarrassed just giving you the link to that.)

I have a couple of things up my sleeve for the blog in this new year, and one of the things I wanted to do is revisit some of my old favorite recipes, recipes that I posted in the very very early days of this blog, and re-post them with new pictures and oftentimes better recipes.  There are so many recipes from the beginning of this blog that I love that never get any attention anymore and/or that I’ve forgotten about for awhile.  So I wanted to give them some love and reintroduce them to you.

And first up is baked chicken thighs, a dinner that we have every single week because it is so easy and so good.  That’s the thing about chicken thighs: the meat is so juicy that it’s hard to mess them up, and even doing something as simple as putting them in the oven results in a tasty dinner.

Some of my sides to go with chicken thighs:
– cous cous
roasted broccoli
– polenta with parmesan cheese
sauteed zucchini with almonds
roasted cauliflower
garlic almond green beans

    Have to admit that I rarely cook chicken thighs.. but after seeing this post it is definitely something I am inspired to go out and buy just so I can try out the recipe. They look delicious!

    Sounds great! I plan to slow cook it at 275F. Should I cover it with aluminum foil?

    Tried it out! It was a definite hit!! Made some pasta and topped it with marinara.. along with the chicken atop! Significant other complimented at least 5 times and can’t stop talking about it 🤗 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
