Spicy Ranch Chicken Thighs
Hidden Valley® Ranch Spicy Seasoning offers the perfect complement to these crispy, browned chicken thighs bursting with flavor. A quick shake of HVR is all it takes to prepare this chicken recipe for greatness, straight out of the oven. Add a side of veggies and you’re done — easy peasy.
olive oil 2 tablespoons
bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 2½ pounds) 6–8
Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the oil. Season the chicken thighs with the spicy seasoning mix on both sides, concentrating more on the flesh side than the skin side.
When the oil is hot but not smoking, place the thighs, skin-side down, in one layer. Cook for about 7 minutes without moving, until the skin has turned golden brown and a crust forms. Turn the heat down slightly if the skin starts to burn.
Flip and cook the chicken for another 2 minutes. Transfer the whole pan to the oven and cook for another 20–25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Serve the spicy chicken thighs hot.
