Crispy oven baked chicken thighs.

Baked Chicken Thighs are moist and tender on the inside and crispy on the outside! Perfectly seasoned, and served with a homemade creamy mustard sauce, this dish could very well be your new favorite!

Baked Chicken Thighs are difficult to mess up. They are never dry because of the higher fat content compared to the breast part. And for that same reason, they are more flavorful. The secret is to leave the skin on. It will crisp up nicely while imparting flavors and keeping the meat tender, too. The coating is also savory which pairs well with the sauce.
