Chicken thighs are one of the least expensive cuts of chicken.

I never used to cook with them until someone showed me how delicious they can be when they are baked with the right ingredients!

I can usually find a bag of frozen thighs that feeds about 6 people for less than $5.

Grocery stores are now stocking skinless thighs for a healthier option.

Bake at 400 for 1 hour!

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 10 min
Yields: Serves 6.


  • 4 pounds chicken thighs, thawed
  • Worcestershire sauce to taste
  • soy sauce to taste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • garlic salt & pepper to taste


  1. Place thawed chicken in a 9 x 13 glass Pyrex baking dish without a lid.
  2. Sprinkle generously garlic salt and black ground pepper over each thigh.
  3. Add Worcestershire sauce by sprinkling a few drops over each chicken piece.
  4. Add soy sauce by sprinkling a few drops over each chicken piece. Do not sprinkle too much or the flavor will be diluted.
  5. Pour 1/2 cup water in the bottom of the Pyrex baking dish.
  6. Bake at 400 degree oven for 1 hour.

Optional side dishes

This chicken serves well with steamed white rice or buttered boiled potatoes. Add green beans for the ultimate easy meal.

        Hi Amber! Thank you so much for commenting. For people who cannot eat soy, try cooking the chicken in lemon juice with a little oregano. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top. Bake the same way. It tastes like Italian chicken that way.
