Boneless baked chicken thighs recipe

Chicken can sometimes have a bad reputation for drying out in the oven, but we won’t let that happen here. With chicken thighs you don’t have to worry – even if they are skinless And the boneless.

our secret? Boneless chicken thighs are first marinated in a honey mustard sauce that makes them incredibly rich and flavorful. Baking thighs at a higher temperature means less time spent in the oven with better results. These drumsticks are great served with a large salad or some roasted potatoes.

The longer you let the chicken marinate, the better. If you only have 30 minutes to marinate, leave the chicken at room temperature. If soaking for longer than an hour, go ahead and let it soak in the fridge. You can let the chicken marinate overnight in the refrigerator if necessary. Now the chicken may start to break down a lot due to the presence of acids and sodium.

If it’s refrigerated, I like to take out the chicken and let it warm up a bit at room temperature while the oven preheats. Going straight from the refrigerator to the oven can cause the chicken to tighten and become tough, and will encourage more uneven cooking. If you try this recipe, we want to know what you think!
