Ingredients

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs about 8 thighs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • ¾ tsp garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cayenne
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 ¼ tsp sea salt

Instructions

Equipment Needed

Directions

  • Heat a pan on medium high heat and add 1 tbsp oil. Mix 1 tbsp olive oil into the thighs, then toss them with the paprika, basil, garlic, thyme, onion, cayenne, pepper and salt.
  • Once the oil in the pan is hot, sear the chicken thighs until fully cooked. The internal temperature should read at least 165° at the thickest part of the largest thigh.
  • Serve hot or cool to top a salad.

Notes

Expert Tips

  1. Unless you can find a good deal on boneless skinless chicken thighs, deboning them yourself is super easy. Follow this tutorial to learn how it's done!
  2. Do you like spicy foods? Try doubling the cayenne in this recipe.
  3. It's important to check your chicken with a digital meat thermometer. Uncooked chicken can make you very sick, whereas over done chicken is dry and not as appealing.
