Simplest Roast Chicken Thighs, Ever

roast chicken thigh

Roast chicken is one of the simplest way to cook and enjoy chicken. Ever since I invested in a convection oven, I've been doing some simple roast chicken thigh for dinner. The beauty of this dish is that, I can roast the whole bird or choose to just roast parts of chicken, depending on how many people I am cooking for.

I absolutely love a good meal of roast chicken. With minimal ingredients and convenient cooking methods, I can roast a chicken, whip up a salad and call it a dinner.
