Baked Chicken Thighs
  • 8 chicken thighs, skin on
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • salt and pepper
Buttery Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, melted
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. 

  2. In a large, oven safe skillet, heat the canola oil. Prep the chicken thighs by removing any extra fat/skin, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  3. Once the oil is heated, place the chicken thighs SKIN SIDE DOWN and proceed to fry until the skin is brown and crispy. Flip, then fry the other side for another 5 minutes. 

  4. Place the chicken thighs in the oven ( still in the skillet) and cook for another 25-30 minutes, until they reach a temperature of 165 °F. 

  5. Mix together the hot sauce and butter and pour over the chicken thighs in the pan. Cook for another 10 minutes, then baste with the sauce. Cook, basting as needed, until the chicken thighs reach a temperature of 185 °F. 

  6. Remover and serve with sauce drizzled on top.
