  • Yield: 4 1x


(8) 4-oz chicken thighs (I get my chicken thighs from ButcherBox, which I highly recommend!)

1.5 tablespoons cajun seasoning

2 tablespoons avocado oil


Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350ºF.

Pat your chicken thighs dry with a paper towel. Season both sides with the cajun seasoning.

When your skillet is warm, add in the avocado oil.

Sear the chicken thighs skin side DOWN for 3-4 minutes, until crispy and golden. Flip, and transfer to the oven to finish cooking until the thighs have an internal temperature of 165ºF, about 10-15 minutes.

Rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve warm.

Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for 5 days.


Keep an eye on the heat of your cast iron skillet. You don’t want it to get too hot or it will burn the spices. Keep it over a gentle, medium heat.
