These crispy chicken thighs are not only easy to make but are the perfect addition to any meal. Seared with grass-fed ghee and finished in the oven for the perfect crispiness on the outside, and tender and juicy on the inside.


4 Organic Free Range Chicken Thighs (boned in, skin on)

Himalayan Pink Salt

Cracked Black Pepper

1 Tbsp Ghee

A few wedges of lemon to serve


Preheat oven to 475° F.

Heat ghee over high heat in a 12inch cast-iron/any oven-safe skillet.

Wash and pat chicken thighs dry.

Season with Himalayan salt and black pepper on both sides.

Nestle Chicken thighs in the skillet (skin side down) and sear for 2 minutes. Lower heat to medium-high and continue cooking (skin side down) for ~12minutes or until skin is golden brown.

Transfer skillet to preheated oven and cook for another 15 minutes. Flip chicken and continue cooking for 5-8 minutes or until an instant thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh reads 165° F. Let rest for a few minutes.

Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice.
