One package of 6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2-3 tbsp Quick and Simple Seasoning Blend or Herbamare, or your preferred chicken seasoning mix
¼ cup dried or fresh thyme
1 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil cooking spray for greasing the baking pan
Preheat the Oven:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
Prepare the Baking Pan:
Grease a small baking pan with 1 tbsp of coconut oil or use olive oil cooking spray to prevent sticking.
Season the Chicken Thighs:
Place the boneless, skinless chicken thighs in the prepared baking pan.
Sprinkle each piece of chicken generously with the Quick and Simple Seasoning Blend or your chosen chicken seasoning mix.
Add Aromatic Thyme:
Sprinkle the chicken thighs with dried or fresh thyme. If using fresh thyme, ensure you remove the stems.
Cover with Foil:
Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil, ensuring the shiny side is facing down. Leave a small corner uncovered to allow steam to escape during cooking.
Bake the chicken thighs in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. Cooking times may vary slightly depending on your oven, so ensure the internal temperature of the chicken reaches at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius).
Cool and Serve:
Once baked, let the chicken thighs cool briefly.
Serve with your choice of vegetables and a healthy complex carbohydrate like brown rice for a well-balanced meal.
