Easy Oven Fried Chicken Thighs with Perfectly Crispy Skin!

In the springtime our schedule gets a little bit nuts. Actually, it’s a lot nuts.

My husband is a lacrosse coach, which means some weeks he’s home around 7:30 p.m., and other weeks he’s not home until 10:00 p.m. or later.

Couple that with my oldest’s after school activity schedule, and this makes cooking a family dinner kind of interesting. By “interesting” I mean challenging. And by “challenging” I mean impossible.

Unless we wanted to live like the families in The Night Circus. Or if we wanted to live like vampires.

Except I’m not sure that either lifestyle would mesh well with the kids’ school and our day jobs.

So instead I’ve been trying to cook meals that the kids and I can eat together, but will also save well for a late night re-heat for the husband.

These easy oven fried chicken thighs will become a fast favorite in your house. The perfectly crispy skin is delicious and worth fighting over!

Or, on days where he’s home a little earlier I’ll feed the kids first and then the two of us will eat our dinner together, later.

Here’s a simple favorite that reheats well: easy oven fried chicken thighs (yes, with perfectly crispy skin!). I like to pair it with creamy buttered mashed potatoes, and steamed corn. Mmmm….

These easy oven fried chicken thighs with perfectly crispy skin will become a weekly staple in your house!
