Chicken is my default protein. I have a handful of ways of making it, but after a while, it just gets boring. I'm not going to lie, I started looking at oven baked chicken recipes just so I could get out of the kitchen and watch some TV while dinner cooked itself. I checked out this recipe from food.com and loved the simplicity of it. Throw together some spices, rub on chicken thighs, throw in oven, remove 50 minutes later.
No joke, this is the most flavorful chicken I've had! And some of the fastest to prepare! The spice rub is really basic: ground cumin, paprika, ground tumeric, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and cinnamon with a bit of olive oil. The chicken thighs defrost remarkably well, so there is no reason not to cook a few servings of this and freeze the rest to add with some greens and grains for a healthy meal in no time!
I'm glad I got out of my chicken rut with this recipe! What's your surprise new favorite way of cooking meat?
