How to make Oven Baked Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
These baked chicken thighs require only a few steps.
First, combine ingredients for marinade – olive oil, Dijon Mustard, garlic, dried parsley, dried oregano, salt and pepper. We recommend marinating for at least one hour to let the flavors rest, but you can skip the time marinating and go directly to the next step.
Next, arrange the thighs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure that the bottom area of the thighs is facing down. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit, flipping to the other side after about 12 minutes. Bake on the other side for 5 minutes and then flip over again to broil the top.
The recipe cook time and temperature does not work for bone-in thighs, so please only use this recipe for boneless chicken thighs. Bone-in chicken thighs take longer to cook.

The flavors in this dish pair nicely with a variety of side dishes.
