These quick and easy Paleo Roasted Chicken Thighs are the perfect simple weeknight dinner, and a great one pan meal that’s ready in less than an hour.


  • 1 package skin-on, boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 tbsp. favorite cooking oil (I use olive oil spray)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Add additional seasonings to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 445.
  2. Place parchment paper or foil on a cooking sheet and place a wire rack on top.
  3. Spray the wire rack with cooking oil.
  4. Remove the chicken thighs from the packaging and place on the wire rack, allowing adequate space between each thigh.
  5. Spray the chicken thighs with your favorite cooking oil, and add salt and pepper.
  6. Place the chicken thighs in the oven, and let roast for 45 minutes, or until they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
  7. Remove from the oven, add any herbs or additional spices, and let set for 5 minutes before serving.


Make sure to add the seasonings after you cook the thighs. Most seasonings outside of salt and pepper will burn easily.
