Roasted Chicken Thighs

This one of my meal prep dinners. You don’t have to prep this ahead though, just mix up the ingredients for the chicken and bake right away. If you want to make this ahead, drizzle the chicken with the oil and store in a container in the fridge. Mix up the seasonings and store until you are ready to bake.

This is a perfect dinner for a busy day. You can adjust the seasonings for your family’s tastes. If your family loves spice, add some cayenne. Maybe you don’t like garlic, leave it out.
Here is link to how I made the vegetables for this dinner. I don’t like to bake the thighs with the vegetables since they take longer to bake and the vegetables would be burned by the time the chicken is done.

Roasted Chicken Thighs


  • 2-2 1/2 lb Chicken Thighs with bones and skin
  • Smoked Paprika 1 t
  • Onion Powder 1 t
  • Garlic Powder 1 t
  • Salt 1 t
  • Ground Black Pepper 1/2 t
  • Cayenne Pepper A couple dashes


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle chicken things with olive oil and lay on a medium sized cookie sheet. I line mine with parchment paper for a fast clean up. That part is not necessary at all. Mix together your seasonings. Sprinkle on top of chicken.
  • Bake for approximately 40 minutes. You want your chicken thighs to be 165 degrees inside for safe eating. Serve warm.
