Instructions

For the chicken:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray.
  • Place chicken thighs equally spaced on the baking sheet, skin side up, ensuring that they’re not touching. Brush top and bottom of each chicken thigh with olive oil. 
  • Stir together salt, garlic powder, parsley, pepper, and onion powder together in a small bowl. Sprinkle spices on tops and bottoms of chicken thighs, leaving them skin side up once seasoned.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. If desired to crisp the skin additionally, broil the thighs for a very quick time (less than a minute), keeping a close eye so that they don’t burn. Remove baking sheet from the oven.

For the buffalo sauce:

  • Add buffalo sauce, honey, and unsalted butter to a small saucepan set over low-medium heat. Stir until the butter is melted and all ingredients are combined. Drizzle sauce over chicken thighs for serving.
