Seasoning mix

  1. In a bowl, add all the seasoning mix ingredients, blend them together well.
  2. Place thighs on a rack in a baking sheet.
  3. Pull back the skin on each thigh and lightly salt the flesh of each piece.
  4. If time permits, pull the skin back over the flesh, cover and refrigerate for an hour up to overnight.
  5. If time is an issue, after sprinkling the flesh with salt, rub the flesh with the seasoning mix, pull the skin back down, and rub more seasoning on the skin.
  6. Repeat this process for each thigh.
  7. Once each thigh is seasoned, drizzle olive oil over the top of each chicken piece.
  8. Place the chicken in a preheated 375º oven.
