  • 8-10 pieces chicken thighs with skin bone-in
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 3 tsp table salt
  • 2 tsp pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Spray a 9x13 metal, stoneware or enameled cast iron baking dish with cooking spray & set aside. (please see notes in the post about using Pyrex or clear glass dishes)
  • Combine the chicken, flour, paprika, salt and pepper in a large gallon-size zip-top bag-. Seal the bag & shake well until chicken is coated in flour.
  • Remove each piece of chicken from the bag & place skin-side down in the prepared baking dish.
  • Sprinkle with additional seasonings to taste if desired.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove & turn each piece of chicken over so they are skin side up and then sprinkle with more seasonings.
  • Bake an additional 30-35 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven & transfer the chicken to a plate lined with paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with additional salt if desired.


***NOTE: Due to some safety concerns with baking glass cookware, please use a metal, Corningware or Enameled Cast Iron baking dish.
***If you want the flavors of the seasonings to be more pronounced - I recommend just coating the chicken in the flour & then sprinkling the seasonings on after you transfer the chicken to the pan - reserving some of the seasonings to sprinkle on again once you flip the chicken over.
