Baked bone in chicken thighs recipe that is made in one pot! So easy and done from start to finish in just 30 minutes with only 5 ingredients. Delicious.
I always see great deals on chicken thighs at the store, but never quite know what to do with them. The other day I decided I was just going to figure out an easy way to make baked bone in chicken thighs that we all would like, and I definitely should’ve done it much sooner! They were delicious.

This quick chicken thigh recipe is our favorite one pot meal. We are a busy family and love one pot meals!
- Don’t know why I veered away from chicken thighs. Maybe it is because my mom never really cooked them when I was a kid. I was just so unfamiliar with them for that reason.
Cast iron skillets are great for recipes like this one. If you don’t have one or have never used one they are fabulous (and not just for Grandmas anymore).
- You can find a cast iron skillet similar to mine. Throw it on the stove, then transfer it to the oven. You can cook it all in just one pan. My kinda’ cooking!
First you want to add some olive oil to your pan.
This is your friend for this easy chicken thigh recipe.
Then put your thighs (by themselves) in the pan and cook on low.
This will allow them to brown just a bit on the bottom. Add your veggies, throw it in the oven, and the whole thing is done in about 30 minutes.
Seriously, you can just transfer the whole skillet full of food right into the preheated oven. Then when done just put a trivet on the table and serve right in the pan.
It looks pretty that way anyway. Quite frankly it makes it so much easier, so it’s a win win in my book. Super easy chicken thigh recipe to make and very few ingredients.
