Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 1 thigh
- Chicken thighs bone-in with skin
- Basic spice rub or salt and pepper
- Rendered bacon grease or vegetable oil
Season chicken lightly with spice rub or salt and pepper.
Heat a layer of fat or oil in a large oven safe skillet on the stove top (preferably cast iron).
Place chicken skin side down in the hot skillet, for 10 - 15 minutes until chicken skin is beginning to brown and crisp. Shift chicken once or twice in the skillet to make sure it’s not sticking.
Transfer to a 425 degree oven and continue cooking chicken skin side down for an additional ten minutes.
Turn chicken over, and cook about 5 more minutes, until chicken is cooked through (165 degrees F)
