In the past I veered away from making oven baked chicken thighs at 350. 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?? (affiliate links present)

With very little prep these garlic butter chicken thighs baked in the oven were SO easy to make. You can add any seasonings you prefer. A simple salt and pepper with some garlic powder is a good base to start with and go from there.

The package of 6 chicken thighs was less than five dollars and fed all of us with that side of stuffing I talked about. For this one with the cook time we are referring to those that are defrosted or fresh. If you are baking frozen chicken thighs you would need to refer to this other post. You’re looking at about 1 hour though.

Super cheap meal! 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. Pair them with best stuffing recipe and it made for a great dinner!

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.

It’s seriously an easy sheet pan chicken thigh recipe that you can throw together easily, is healthy, and is really flavorful. You can add a few veggies and spices on there too that I am sure you have in your spice cupboard too!

If you love this easy chicken recipe you can try it in your Crockpot too. Follow this slow cooker chicken thighs and potatoes post here for that.

  • Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towels. Add into a bowl with Lawrys seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder is good too. Add sliced onions and mushrooms and mix.
  • Use your hands to massage oil and spices into chicken. Put parchment paper on baking sheet pan.
  • Pour chicken and contents on cookie sheet and spread out flat to cook evenly with skin side facing up. Sprinkle oregano, basil, sprigs of thyme and a squeeze of half a lemon over the top of the veggies and chicken (use more spices if desired). 
  • Put in oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until top of skins get lightly browned (or as brown as you’d like them).
  • You can get these extra crispy switched to broiler setting for a few minutes.
    • or throw them into your air fryer at 400 for 3-4 minutes.

Always check to ensure internal temperature of 165 is reached with meat thermometer before consuming. Bake time for boneless skinless chicken thighs will be 5 minutes less or so. If you have this nifty appliance it will do all the work for you to make the outside crunchy! Even without breading, crispy chicken skin is the bomb.
