Citrus Roasted Chicken Thighs

4-5 lbs bone-in, skin on chicken
1.5 Tbsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp dried onion flakes
Zest and Juice of one lemon, lime OR orange

Mix all spices, zest and juice in a small bowl. Pull chicken skin back from meat, without completely detaching it. Distribute spice mixture evenly among chicken thighs, usually about a spoonful per thigh is what I get. Fold skin back over and rub any remaining spice mixture on your hands over the skin (More for looks than anything else 🙂

Roast in the oven for any of the following intervals/temperatures.

350 degrees for 1 hour and 45 minutes
400 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes
425 degrees for 1 hour and 5 minutes

Once they are done, if you aren’t ready to eat, you can simply turn the oven off and leave them in for up to about an hour and then serve without drying them out (LOVE chicken thighs for this reason).
