If you like chicken wings, but always wish there was more meat, then the chicken thigh is for you.


  • 10 Chicken Thighs

  • 1 Tablespoon, 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard (or grain mustard if preferred)

  • 3 T Herbs de Provence

  • 1 tsp Sea salt


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. If you have convection setting on your oven, you’ll want to turn it on. This will help your skin get extra crisp.

2. Pat dry the chicken thighs with a paper towels. Place parchment on baking sheet. If you have a baking cooling rack, you’ll want to place it on the baking sheet. This way the hot air will rotate around the chicken, the juices and fat will drip bellow, and you’ll get more crispy, flavorful chicken. 

3. Rub a ½ teaspoon of Dijon mustard (or grain mustard if preferred), on each side of the chicken, then sprinkle generously with herbs de Provence and sea salt. 

4. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.


If you want your chicken thighs extra crispy then bake them on a cooling rack on top of the baking sheet. This way the hot air rotates around the chicken, and excess fat drips off.
