Crispy Cajun Chicken Thighs

Crispy Cajun Chicken Thighs


  • 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 Tablespoon Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable oil
  • 1 lemon (small), cut in rounds
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, chopped


  1. Position a rack in the lower end of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Season the chicken thighs on both sides with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning. In a 12 inch ovenproof skillet or cast iron pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil until hot. Add the chicken, skin side down, and cook until the fat has rendered and the skin is crisp and golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  3. Turn chicken to skin side up and scatter the lemon slices on top of the chicken. Transfer to the oven and roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh, registers 170 degrees Fahrenheit, approximately 20 minutes. Serve and Enjoy!
