Deep fried is not cool; But when you want that deep fried taste while keeping it less deadly, here’s a recipe thats lighter and yes still quite tasty! We’re loving these skin-on bone-in thighs!
• skin-on bone-in thighs
• oil (high cook point)
seasoning of choice (we used fajita. Cajun & Jerk are great too)
⁃ clean thighs
⁃ place thighs a dry cloth
⁃ pat dry
⁃ Lightly oil (cast iron) pan (enough to sear thighs)
⁃ start to slowly heat oil
⁃ while oil is slowly heating, season both sides with salt + pepper
⁃ only season side without skin with seasoning other seasoning (we used fajita, but cajun + jerk are also good choices)
⁃ when oil is hot enough, place thighs skin side down, in pan for 6 mins
⁃ remove pan from fire and turn thighs over in oil
⁃ feel free to add garlic cloves + raw veggies to the pan (i.e. brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, asparagus, etc.)
⁃ bake at 350 for 20-25 mins or until internal temperature is 165F
