In the event that you haven’t attempted that exceptionally basic cooking strategy yet, you ought to, on the grounds that you essentially need to taste it to comprehend how astounding a solitary piece of chicken can be.
Throughout the course of recent years, I’ve attempted perhaps one or two techniques to reproduce that flavor and firmness in the stove and I am jubilant to have at long last nailed it.
I’m naming this the simplest recipe in light of the fact that it requires no prep, no marinade, no extraordinary anything by any means ahead of time.

Grab your chicken, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then bake. Seriously. That’s all the effort it requires.
You’ve literally just gifted yourself an hour to crash on the couch, read a book, watch a show, and in general ignore everything else; while the chicken sizzles in the oven and fills the house with delicious smells.

I utilize bone in and skin on chicken thighs for this recipe. I find that it creates the best outcomes. Notwithstanding, assuming you have boneless skinless available or that is only your preference, they turn out only great with this recipe also! They might require around 10 minutes less to cook, so watch out for them.
Can I make Crispy Chicken Ahead:
MAKE AHEAD: Best way is to toast breadcrumbs, then put chicken in batter, leave up to 2 days. Then crumb the chicken just before baking. It is ok crumbed up to 24 hours beforehand, store in the fridge. Freezing raw doesn’t work. Reheating: Best way is to blast in the oven for literally 3 – 5 minutes at 200C/390F until it is just warmed inside.

Preheat the broiler to 400 degrees. Line an enormous baking plate or half sheet skillet with foil and put every one of the chicken pieces on it, skin side down. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and flip each piece skin side up. Sprinkle about a teaspoon of oil over the skin on each piece of chicken and rub to cover. Sprinkle again with salt and pepper.
Bake for one hour, until most of the fat has rendered out of the chicken and the skin is golden brown and crisp. Remove from the oven and let rest about 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
