Roasted Chicken Thighs with Peppers & Potatoes

My family loves this dish! There's nothing better than oven baked boneless chicken thighs for dinner. It looks and tastes like you fussed, but it is really simple to make. These roasted chicken thighs use healthy olive oil and fresh herbs from my garden. —Pattie Prescott, Manchester, New Hampshire

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Boneless skinless chicken thighs work well in the slow cooker. The meat shreds easily, yet stays moist due its slightly higher fat content. They're also cheaper than chicken breast, making it ideal for budget-friendly weeknight dinners.
  • Common olive oil works better for cooking at high heat than virgin or extra-virgin oil. These higher grades have ideal flavor for cold foods, but they smoke at lower temperatures.
