Best Baked Chicken You Will Ever Have {Paleo Dinner: Baked Chicken Thighs with Shallots & Garlic and a Lovely Czar Heidi Salad}

Baked Chicken Thighs with Shallots & Garlic
I found this simple dinner fix while scouring the net for Paleo recipes on a site called Food Lovers Kitchen.... it was so flavorful, best baked chicken I've ever had. Seriously. Even Evil-Chicken-Hater-Old-Guy had a second piece....

Baked Chicken Thighs with Shallots & Garlic

What you Need [serves 6]:

1  Shallot, peeled and sliced paper thin
3 clove Garlic, crushed into a paste
8 Chicken Thighs, bone-in, skin-on
Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste


What You Do:
Preheat oven to bake at 425°F;
Rinse chicken thighs and place on a broiler pan;
Pat thighs dry with a paper towel;
Using your finger gently separate skin from thigh to create a pocket on top [be careful not to remove it completely from the corners];
Place shallots and garlic I used a butter knife to "spread" the garlic under the skin;
Sprinkle the skin with sea salt and fresh ground pepper;
Bake for 40–45 minutes, or until juices run clear.

I served with my version of a Caesar salad [sans croutons] which is at the bottom of THIS POST called the Czar Heidi Salad.

Bon Appetit!
