Garlic Baked Chicken (picture montage included)

So Carson and his chicken got me to thinking...






So I bought some chicken thighs, locally grown, fresh, never frozen. $1.29 a # for bone in, I got a little over 2#. Sitting next to my Cuisinart 11 cup food processor, and J.A. Henckels 8" Chef's knife.

I wanted to get practice boning thighs, and I am going to be getting a nice boning knife soon, but the Henckels was adequate, but a little too big for the job. They came out alright.

Then I combined some olive oil and about 6 cloves of garlic and warmed them to meld the flavor. I inherited this pot, it's seen much better days.

I moved the oil and garlic to one bowl, and combined about 1/3 a cup of Panko bread crumbs, 1/3 cup regular bread crumbs, 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, a little fresh cracked pepper, and I have an all purpose Italian seasoning grinder that I added a bit of, and put them in a seperate bowl. More later on this.

I dipped in the oil/garlic, then dredged in the dry ingredients that I whisked together to combine. The recipe called for a baking dish, but I left that at my mom's house when I made lasagna so I used Old Trusty. My Lodge cast iron skillet.

Baked them at 425 for 35 minutes in a preheated oven. They came out like this.

They were cooked through, and the bottoms were actually nicely browned due to the cast iron.

All in all these were actually really good and super easy. I will use cayenne pepper, and other things to give more heat and flavor, but there were easy, fun, and delicious.

Also as a side note, they are pretty healthy. EVOO is a good fat, and the bread crumbs have hardly anything in them. The Parmesan is the worst thing in there, and that can be omitted.


Flame away!

Add Step: "Turn Over half way through cooking" and you've got it.

Yeah, I was debating about that. I definitely should have.

And I was thinking about higher heat, or longer cooking to make them crispier?

Maybe less oil?

This shite is funny.

I'm stuffing a pork loin and cooking some yard bird Saturday in the Cajun microwave. I'll try to do a picture montage as well.

Carson can't have all the glory.

I was late to the Carson's thread... but dang, well done sir. Thanks for the pics

Thighs

Out of curiosity, do you think it would have been worth it to flip them over at some point and try to get the other side browned as well?

ETA: dpd901 beat me too it.

Most definitely. Also I think the skillet is the way to go. I was getting excited when I made the change, it just seemed so right

I would have thought they would have browned a bit more on the top as is, given your temp and the cooking time.

I agree. The skillet sounds like the way to go for sure.

That's why I didn't flip, but I should have payed more attention what they looked like at 15-20 mins.

Oh well, that's the fun part, I get to learn things AND still get to eat them

Looks good. Kind of like a chicken cutler baked

I basically do the same thing with garlic oil and bake them, but I top with sautéed spinach roasted rep peppers and fresh moz

And last night I switched it up and topped with fresh moz and prosciutto. Was legit

It looks good but lightning can't strike the same place twice.

You can't stop Carson's Uppity Chicken. You can only hope to contain it.
