This chicken dish looks way fancier than it actually is – which is my kind of meal! It also contains pretty close to zero carbs – which can come in useful if you need to cut down due to too many treats or accidents! Not that I know anything about that…
Prepare the topping by mixing together shredded cheese (I use an Italian blend), finely chopped fresh basil, dried oregano, onion powder, red pepper flakes (these are optional) and black pepper.
Melt some butter and pour it into a shallow plate or saucer. Remove the skin from some bone-in chicken thighs and start a production line! Dip the “pretty side” of the chicken thigh in the butter, then place it in the cheese mixture, then turn it over and place in an oven proof dish.
Repeat with the remaining chicken thighs. If you have any extra cheese mixture then press it onto the top of the chicken.
Cover the dish with kitchen foil and place in a preheated oven (375F) for 45 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached 165F. You may like to remove the foil for the last 5-10 minutes of the cooking time to brown the top a little.
