These Crispy Italian Chicken Thighs have become one of my favorite dinners during the week  because it’s so simple.

I’m really excited to share this one with you because it’s one of the brand-spanking-new-shiny-out-of-the-box recipes from my ebook, The Paleo Athlete.

How To Make Crispy Skin Chicken in the Oven

To get the skin really crispy, make sure it’s really dry before you put the chicken in the oven. If you’re lucky enough to have a convection oven, you’ll want to use that setting.

Can You Sub Bone-In Chicken Thighs?

Can’t find bone-in chicken thighs? You can use boneless, but cut the baking time down by about 5 minutes.

Make this a complete meal by throwing on some veggies as a side dish, and you’re good to go. I like the skin-on thighs because they stay moist in the oven.

If you can only find skinless, you can wrap the thighs in bacon before you bake them…winning. As an extra bonus, I save the chicken bones to make stock in the slow cooker.
