  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 50 mins
  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings 1x


  • 68 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsp butter, ghee or fat of choice, melted (I use THIS)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 12 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (I used rosemary and thyme) OR 1 tsp of your favorite seasoning blend
  • black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400’F. Place a baking rack on a large baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. Combine melted fat of choice, salt, garlic, and herbs (or seasoning blend) in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Pat each chicken thigh dry with a paper towel. Cut off excess skin hanging off – but not too much as skin will shrink with baking. Place in a large bowl.
  4. Pour herb mixture over chicken and toss to coat. Place chicken thighs single layer on prepared rack/pan. Sprinkle with several grinds of fresh black pepper.
  5. Bake for 50-55 minutes, until crispy and golden. Serve and enjoy.
