Crispy Cajun Chicken Thighs


I have been on the look out for a cast iron skillet for a couple of months now and I finally found one! I absolutely love crispy chicken thighs so couldn’t wait to try them out on it!


This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo & Whole30 Approved.

6 chicken thighs (bone in)

  1. In a large bowl combine the olive oil and the spices.
  2. Add the chicken to the bowl and mix until covered in the marinade.
  3. Allow to marinade for 25-30 minutes.
  4. Preheat your oven to 200Β°c/390Β°F.
