The recipe is dead easy and my whole family loves this chicken. It will likely be the easiest chicken dinner you'll ever make. No marinade, no fancy ingredients, just a sprinkling of spices that are likely in your pantry already.
I served this chicken with the Italian Rice Pilaf from my cookbook and a salad, but it would also work well with coleslaw, pasta salad, or potato salad.
Crispy Italian Oven Chicken
Yield: 5-6 servings
2 1/2 - 3 pounds bone-in chicken thighs
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, store-bought is fine
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking tray or half sheet pan with foil and place all the chicken pieces on it, skin side down. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and spices and flip each piece skin side up. Drizzle a little oil over the skin on each piece of chicken and rub lightly to coat. Sprinkle again with salt, pepper, and spices.
Bake for one hour, until most of the the fat has rendered out of the chicken and the skin is golden brown and crisp. Remove from the oven and let rest about 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
