I have now completed Day 23 of Whole30. While on this Whole30 Program, I have been pleasantly surprised with how well spices create a breading like crust on chicken and fish so I decided to try it on some bone-in chicken thighs.
Preheat 400 F. Mix all the spices together and liberally sprinkle the seasoning on both sides of the chicken making sure to rub the spices into the chicken. Over medium-high heat (with 1 Tbsp oil) sear the chicken (skin side down) for 5-6 minutes and flip the chicken over and sear for another 5-6 minutes. Place the seared chicken in a baking dish (or use an oven safe skillet) and bake until the chicken is cooked through. .
Served with Roasted Carrots. Tossed with oil, salt, and pepper and roasted at 400 F until tender (about 20 minutes).

Comments: Well, it wasn’t fried chicken, but the spices created a delicious crust on the chicken. I served it with roasted carrots because I cannot get enough of those right now! The carrots are sweet and the salt and pepper give it a nice contrast. I’m leaving for another work trip so this will be my last home cooked meal for the week. I’m going to miss my kitchen! Oh yeah…my fiance and my dog too!
