Oven baked, crispy chicken thighs recipe for dinner

I love simple dinners. Really, we are all about simple in our home. We never have a plan until the day of, and it usually is just based around what we have in stock. We don’t plan meals and buy according to those meals. We buy things we generally like and build our meals around what’s in stock.

Oven baked, crispy chicken thighs recipe for dinner

So, we had some chicken thighs that we needed to use. I grew up having baked BBQ chicken out of the oven. I always ate it, but I can’t say it was my favorite. There’s something about juicy chicken with a softer skin that just doesn’t sit well with me. When you start talking really crispy and flavorful skin, with juicy inside, I get behind that!
