The Best Baked Boneless Chicken Thighs Recipe

Posted on

The Best Baked Boneless Chicken Thighs – Chicken has a terrible reputation for drying out in the oven, but with chicken thighs you don’t need to worry. These boneless chicken thighs first get marinated in an easy honey mustard-esque sauce that makes them so juicy and flavorful. Baking the thighs at a high temp means less time spent in the oven with even better results. These thighs are great served with a big salad or some roasted potatoes.

The longer you let your chicken marinade the better they will be. If you only have time for a 30 minute marinade, leave the chicken out at room temperature. If marinating for any longer than an hour go ahead and let it marinade in the fridge. You can let your chicken marinate overnight in the refrigerator if needed. I like to take my chicken out and leave at room temperature while the oven preheats. Going straight from the refrigerator to the oven can cause your chicken to tighten up and get tough.
