Baked chicken is a game day favorite and this recipe sees that old favorite through a different lens, that is the chicken is baked to a crispy crunch in the oven but left tender and succulent on the inside. This oven-roasted crispy chicken is sort of crunchy but not in the traditional sense you would get using oil and batter, it is roasted to a crackling finish. So healthy and excellent! I needed to bring some chicken to an event recently and I really wanted my chicken to stand out because it was healthily and baked. So when I found this Youtube video explaining how to make oven-roasted chicken, I knew I was onto a winner! The chicken looked so gorgeous and was so beautiful with the crunchy crust stacked up on top and served with a honey mustard dipping sauce, and by the sound of it, the chicken was going to be delicious as well. The chicken I used was from my favorite healthy food market and had been grown in a free-range environment. I planned on serving my air fried chicken on a gingham table cloth with American flags at the center of the table and that made this recipe an instant Southern Classic in my world.
First, mix all your seasonings in a bowl and then add the avocado oil to the chicken and add most of the seasoning and coat the chicken thoroughly.
Then place the chicken thighs on a sheet pan with a rack then cook in the oven at 400 for about 20 minutes.
