Tips on how to cook chicken thighs

  • Allow chicken thighs to sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes. If the meat is too cold, it will render lot of moisture and cook unevenly, resulting in dry chicken thighs.

  • How to make chicken thighs with crispy skin: Preheat your oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Season the chicken all over with salt and paprika (you can use other spice as well). Rub the salt and spices into the skin with your hands. Preheat your favorite cast iron pan over medium-high heat for 2 minutes with 2 tablespoons of oil. Once the skillet is hot, add the chicken thighs skin side down and allow them to cook for 8 minutes, without touching anything. You might want to use a splatter-guard. Do not move the chicken around, just let the chicken thighs get nice and crusty. Move the cast iron skillet to the oven and let the chicken thighs them continue to cook skin side down for 9 minutes. Flip the chicken and cook another 3 minutes. Remove chicken from the oven, transfer to a clean plate and let rest for 5 minutes before cutting or serving.

  • If you cook chicken thighs in the Instant Pot or slow cooker, you might want to remove the skin as it contain fat. These methods of cooking preserve the fat content that drips to the sauce, resulting in a greasy dish, contrary to searing in the pan or baking, where we can easily discard the fat content pf the chicken thighs.

  • How long to keep cooked chicken thighs: You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
