Cajun Chicken Thighs are on today’s menu. And, they’re spiced and flavored to perfection! Similar to many recipes on this site, this is an easy recipe to make. It also doesn’t require too much fuss.
For best results when making these Cajun Chicken Thighs, be sure to pat them dry well with a paper towel. These chicken thighs must be dried well to ensure that they get a beautiful, golden outer crust. Having too much moisture on them will only cause them to steam and have a soft and moist outer skin. These chicken thighs only get seared for about 5 to 6 minutes per side before going into a 350°F/180°F oven for 40 minutes. You want to make sure that you don’t skip the searing part because it yields a beautiful golden color.
While these are baking in the oven, go ahead and set your table. You’re going to be ready for some delicious chicken when they come out of the oven. Be sure that the chicken thighs reach an internal temperature of at least 165°F. That’s how you know they are safe to eat. Depending on how your oven cooks, you might need to add five minutes or so to the cooking time. So, to be safe, always use an internal thermometer. You can get them online for about $10.
These Cajun Chicken Thighs taste delicious when paired with rice. They even pair nicely with a garden salad with your favorite kind of dressing. Plate them however you wish. If you serve them with a food that you like, then you will have a delicious meal!
Hopefully, you enjoy these Cajun Chicken Thighs and find them to be finger-lickin’ good! Happy Cooking!
