Crispy Baked Chicken Thighs

3 Pounds Chicken thighs, About 6-8
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Teaspoons Salt
2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
2 Teaspoon Onion Powder
2 Teaspoons Italian Seasoning
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1 Teaspoon Paprika

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup and set aside

Remove the chicken thighs from their packaging and pat them dry with paper towels

Arrange the chicken thighs on prepared baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil rubbing the oil into the chicken to coat

In a small bowl mix together the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and paprika

Sprinkle the spices over the chicken evenly

Bake chicken in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes

I only had 1 1/2 pounds chicken thighs so I cut all the spices in half and baked them in my Instant Omni Plus Air Fryer Toaster Oven using this air fryer calculator and did them at 370 for 28 min.

These chicken thighs were so moist and tender and the seasoning was very good. I also made Vigo Yellow Rice and fried green beans. The thigh recipe was so quick to put together. This was a very good meal, I’ll be making it again!

  1. I’m still toying with buying an air-fryer toaster oven, but haven’t done it yet. The chicken looks super.

  2. I’m seriously leaning towards buying an air fryer toaster oven. I’m afraid if I just get an air fryer I’ll never use it because it will be in a cabinet and out of sight out of mind but if I get a combo then it can replace my toaster oven and be out all the time. This sounds delicous!

  3. We eat a lot of chicken thighs in fact having them tonight.

  4. Sounds delicious! We eat a lot of similar chicken recipes. They fall into my “apply heat to food” category of cooking, meaning they work whether you remember what temperature to use, how long to cook, or what to put on the chicken. Just rub something salty on the chicken and cook until done. 🙂 That’s usually all I can accomplish after working all day.

  5. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a combination air fryer/toaster oven. My stomach is growling looking at your meal!

  6. I love my air fryer oven, it does so many different things.

  7. I posted a chicken thigh recipe this weekend too. So easy but fancy and delish. I made note of a recipe this week that uses Chex Corn cereal and loads of butter as a breading for chicken and then you bake it. I can’t do fried chicken because of Celiac but this I can do. Those beans of yours look good too. I love a good green veggie.

    • I’ll check your chicken thigh recipe out. I found a chicken recipe that uses mashed potato flakes that I almost made instead of this one. I’ve been frying green beans for about 30 years and usually fry them browner, but I started supper late and we were starving.
