Skillet Roasted Chicken Recipe

Kelly Mike - Sunday, June 15, 2014


  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6-8 chicken thighs, skin on
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 6 whole garlic cloves, peeled
  • fresh thyme sprigs


Preheat oven to 475º degrees.
Heat 12-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat on stove or cooktop. Drizzle in olive oil and heat, but do not overheat to allow it to smoke. Sprinkle salt and pepper on chicken thighs and place the chicken skin side down into skillet. Cook 2 minutes or until chicken skin has browned. Turn and reduce heat to medium. Cook chicken until fat has rendered off, about 10-12 more minutes.
Sprinkle chicken with paprika, nestle in whole garlic cloves throughout chicken thighs, and top with thyme sprigs. Place in oven and roast until chicken temperature registers 160º F when checked with an internal temperature prob, about 12-13 more minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest for about 5 minutes.
