You will simply coat the chicken thighs with a little olive oil and then sprinkle the delicious seasoning combination on both sides. Roasting the chicken in the oven takes no time at all and you’ll have a delicious, juicy meal your family will love.

How Long Do I Roast Boneless Chicken Thighs?

Since we are using boneless, skinless chicken thighs you only need to bake them for about 12-14 minutes. You will bake the chicken thighs at 425° F.

Before removing them from the oven, always make sure to check the internal temperature of the thickest part of the thickest thigh. Once it reaches 165° F, the thighs are ready to be taken out of the oven. I always use my meat thermometer to make sure the thighs have reached a safe temperature.

I like to line my sheet pan with aluminum foil and spray the foil with some non-stick cooking spray. This makes clean-up a breeze. Anything to make things easier!

  • 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tsps paprika
  • 2 tsps garlic powder
  • 2 tsps onion powder
  • 1 ½ tsp kosher salt or to taste

    Chicken thighs are something we really enjoy here, they always cook up nicely. I think they would go well with your Instant Pot Spanish Rice 🙂 Will have to try them in a couple days – when this heat wave breaks!

    I made these for dinner last night and they are not only the easiest thing I’ve cooked, but absolutely delicious! My husband loved them (not a chicken guy) and my kids too. It is now officially included in my “sure bet” list of recipes! Thanks for sharing, please keep posting things like this.
