These Cajun-rubbed chicken thighs are one of the easiest, most affordable ways to enjoy a crispy-coated piece of chicken!
I first fell in love with Cajun-flavor during a mission trip to Louisiana/Mississippi to rebuild homes that were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Cajun and Jerk chicken were served everywhere and it was so good!
Cajun-rubbed chicken thighs are one of those “magical” dinners I pull out when I’m plum out of groceries. I can usually dig out a pack of chicken thighs from the freezer and the rest of this recipe is made from just olive oil, common herbs, and spices! No special ingredients necessary to enjoy some Creole goodness:
- garlic powder
- mineral salt
- ground pepper
- onion powder
- cayenne pepper
- dried oregano
- dried thyme
- olive oil
- bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
These Cajun-rubbed chicken thighs are a Trim Healthy Mama S protein source. Thighs are considered “dark” meat and aren’t as lean as chicken breasts. The best thing about enjoying chicken thighs in an S meal is that you’re free to enjoy that crisp, crusted, cracklin’ skin! My favorite part!
Cajun-rubbed chicken thighs have quite a kick to them, so they are well-paired with a milder, creamy side like Cheesy Cauliflower with Bacon….
….or Creamy & Crunchy Broccoli Salad.
