Crispy Italian Oven Chicken

Crispy Italian Oven Chicken is the easiest chicken you'll ever make and everyone loves it! get the recipe at barefeetinthekitchen.com
Juicy chicken thighs with a crisp and flavorful skin are possible with less than 5 minutes worth of effort! This crispy chicken is made in the oven without any breading at all; the only ingredients you need are the chicken, a drizzle of oil, and a sprinkling of spices. I've been making different variations of our crispy pan-fried and crispy oven-fried chicken for the past few years and it just doesn't get old.

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
(printable recipe)

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!

  1. Sounds delicious. Now I have to stop on the way home to pick up some chicken thighs. Thanks for the dinner idea. I might roast some squash to go with this.
