The Perfect Busy Weeknight Dinner
In my ongoing search for easy weeknight dinners, I came up with these oven-roasted chicken thighs. This recipe is for boneless, skinless chicken thighs, making it very kid-friendly and quick to prepare and cook.
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!
What Can I Eat With Roasted Chicken Thighs?
These delicious Oven Roasted Chicken Thighs can pair well with so many easy sides! We recently ate them with some mashed potatoes and the kids devoured their plates. If you’re eating low-carb, then you may enjoy the chicken thighs with this delicious Loaded Mashed Cauliflower Casserole.
I usually have rice on hand so that’s always a great side dish for these chicken thighs. You can have white jasmine rice or even brown rice with them. Both delicious choices!

Hi Connie! Enjoy!
What would u serve them with?
Hi! In the middle/bottom of the post, before the printable recipe, there’s a section called “What Can I Eat with Roasted Chicken Thighs?” There I give you several ideas with links for delicious sides to enjoy with the chicken! Happy cooking!
Can I use Skinless, boneless chicken breast?
Hi Patti! You definitely can but the cooking time will be different.
Hi, what would the cooking time be if I used skinless boneless chicken breast?
Hi Jennifer! It can take anywhere between 12-20 min for boneless breasts. I suggest using a thermometer to make sure to cook it just right so the thermometer reads 165 degrees. Hope this helps!
Hello, I made these last night and they were a delicious new treat for thighs. Juicy and seasoned just right. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Ruthie! So happy you enjoyed them! I appreciate you stopping by!

Hi Derrick! So happy you enjoyed this recipe! I appreciate you stopping by to comment!
I cooked your roasted chicken recipe today and the timing, which you said 12 to 14 minutes is not correct. I turned the chicken at 14 minutes and they were in no way near done. I cooked the chicken for 14 minutes per side and they still were not done. I let it go another 15 minutes after turning the chicken and they were done at 165 F.
Hi John! Unfortunately, ovens can vary and that’s why this timing works for most people that try the recipe, but there will be a few that it may not work for. This is why I always insist on checking for doneness with a thermometer. Thanks for stopping by!
Made this easy and tasty recipe. Was very good. Will make again. Glad I found it. A couple side dishes and you have a complete meal.
Hi Judy! I appreciate you stopping by and commenting. Glad you enjoyed this recipe!
Saw roasted potato and cut carrot as side dish. Makes complete meal
Hi Jane! Definitely add some easy sides and you got yourself a meal!
This is my go-to recipe for chicken. It’s also my favorite seasoning blend. About once a month I mix up a triple batch, pour it into an empty spice charge, and enjoy deliciously seasoned chicken for the next few weeks. Thank you for a great recipe!
Hi Nikki! I’m so glad you love this recipe and it’s a part of your monthly rotation. I appreciate you taking the time to comment!
Your photos are kind of deceiving because it looks like the thighs still have the skin on them. Otherwise, this recipe was pretty good. I’ll definitely make it again. Maybe try it with the skin on. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Isabel! Not sure what to tell you, that’s what they looked like when they came out of the oven. What you see is the seasoning crisped up. I am glad you liked the recipe and I bet it would be delicious with skin on! I appreciate you stopping by and commenting.
