It doesn't take much to turn chicken thighs into a delicious meal. With just a few spices, the recipe below adds just the right amount of flavor to the rich, juicy meat. A quick turn through the oven, and the chicken thighs are ready to serve.
While this chicken is perfectly paired with a simple side of rice or potatoes, you can also allow the oven to do double duty by roasting the chicken on a rack above an assortment of vegetables, like broccoli, potatoes, and cauliflower. The spiced chicken juices will drip down onto the vegetables, infusing them with flavor.
