Golden and crispy on the outside, juicy, tender and delicious on the inside, these oven baked chicken thighs are awesome! With all easy ingredients, prep and steps, it’s ideal for a great meal any night of the week!


  • 6 chicken thighs, bone-in and skin-on
  • 2 tsp Italian blend seasoning
  • 1.5 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment or foil.
  2. Trim chicken thighs of any extra fat and skin. Pat dry with paper towels (very important!)
  3. In a large zip-top bag or bowl, add chicken thighs and toss with olive oil and seasonings until well coated.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until internal temperature of 185°F (see note below), and golden brown skin.
  5. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.


Chicken is done at an internal temperature of 165°F, but chicken thighs get extra juicy when cooked to higher temps of 185°-190°F.
