Crispy Parmesan Garlic Chicken Thighs

There’s nothing that I love more than crispy, flavorful chicken skin. We love making whole chickens at home, but sometimes it can be hard to get that crispy skin. Recently, we’ve been experimenting with thighs – and came up with this recipe for crispy, garlic parmesan chicken thighs.

The secret is to coat the chicken in Greek yogurt, lots of seasoning, and then bake it at high heat. They’re so simple and the cook is perfect. Every. Single. Time.

We like to make this on busy weeknights. It’s done in less than half an hour and so easy. While the chicken is baking, we’ll prep another try of broccoli or cauliflower, toss in olive oil and seasonings, and then bake it right alongside the chicken. The roasted vegetables always pair so well! If you’re eating low carb, this is definitely a great meal solution.

Let’s get started!
