In the past I veered away from making oven baked chicken thighs. I just didn’t know what to do with this cut of meat. A few months ago I just couldn’t resist because they were on sale and just too cheap to pass up. With a few veggies, olive oil and some spices they had to be good right?? (originally published 3/17)

They were and these oven baked chicken thighs were SO easy to make. I paired them with best stuffing recipe and it made for a great dinner!

  • Here’s the recipe we made then, and now make quite frequently because it’s so good, healthy, and SO inexpensive too!

This was so good!

The package of 6 chicken thighs was less than five dollars and fed all of us with that side of stuffing I talked about.

  • Super cheap meal! I cut mushrooms I had into fourths, cut these mini pearl onions in half, mixed all of it with olive oil and spices in a bowl and threw it on a sheet pan to bake in the oven.

I just use my hands to mix all the contents in the bowl and massage the oil and spices into your chicken thighs before baking. It is easier to make sure all the veggies and chicken get nice and coated if you use your hands instead of a spoon I think.

If you don’t have parchment paper you don’t have to use it but it makes for an easier cleanup and ensures your food doesn’t stick to the pan.
