Herb Crusted Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs and legs are great when combining herbs and seasonings and roasting in the oven or even braising.  The meat is full of flavor and if you have any left just pull apart from the bone and serve on a salad.


  • 8 chicken thighs, with bone (with skin or without)
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons dried Parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper and place in a baking dish.

  3. Bake for 25 minutes.

  4. Combine olive oil and in a shallow dish and set aside.

  5. Carefully remove the pan from the oven.

  6. Turn temperature to broil and put baking rack about 6 inches from heat.

  7. Brush one side of the chicken thighs with mustard/olive oil mixture.

  8. Sprinkle with almond meal/spice mixture and broil until nicely browned (about 5 minutes).

  9. Turn chicken thighs over, brush remaining mustard/olive oil mixture over chicken thighs, season with more almond meal spices and broil again...until golden brown.
