Servings: 4 servings
- 8 each chicken thighs
- 1 each lime
- 2 tsp cumin powder
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp cilantro chopped
- salt and pepper
Rinse and trim the chicken thighs, removing any excess skin and fat. Pat them dry with a paper towel.
Cut the lime in half. Set one half aside. Juice half the lime, putting juice in a small bowl. Add the minced garlic, cumin, cilantro, olive oil, and a good pinch of salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix well to combine.
Toss the marinade with the chicken thighs, combining to coat them well with the mixture.
Set the bowl of chicken thighs in the fridge to marinate, or preheat the oven to 375-F and put the chicken thighs in a single layer skin side up on a baking tray or dish along with all the liquid and garlic chunks.
Bake at 375-F for about 12-15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165-F. Baste halfway through the cooking time with any juices in the pan. Turn the oven on to broil and broil the chicken thighs for 2-3 minutes or until the skin crisps up and gets golden brown. Serve with the pan juices and your favorite sides.
