baked chicken thighs


1. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C), grill or broiler mode. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Arrange chicken thighs into the skillet, skin side down, and cook for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-high; continue cooking skin side down, until skin is golden brown, about 12 minutes. Be careful not to burn the chicken, otherwise it will taste bitter.

2. Meanwhile, prepare the marinade: in a shallow dish or large bowl, combine all the ingredients for the sauce.

3. Transfer chicken into the marinade and coat well on each side. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.

4. Transfer chicken into a oven-proof skillet or a rimmed baking dish, skin side up, and cook in the bottom of the oven for 20-25 minutes on grill or broiler, until skin crisps and meat is cooked through. Rub the skin with a little of the remaining marinade after 15 minutes of cooking. Allow to rest covered for 5 minutes before serving, garnished with cilantro and lime wedges.

Note: If you have remaining marinade left, cook it quickly under the broiler in a cast iron skillet or small baking pan, until slightly reduced. You can serve it along with chicken, it’s delicious.
