Crispy Chicken Thighs


  • 4 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (or oil of choice for high heat)
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh thyme, to taste

Bourbon Blueberry Compote



  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350˚F. Pat chicken dry on both sides with paper towels, then season with sea salt, pepper and thyme.

  • Step 2

    Heat ghee in cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken skin side down and cook about 6-8 minutes or until nicely browned. Flip chicken over and cook for 6-8 minutes more.

  • Step 3

    Transfer cast iron skillet to oven and cook for about 20-25 minutes or until internal temp reaches 165˚F.

  • Step 4

    While the chicken cooks, make the blueberry compote. Add all ingredients to a medium sized pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until berries and sauce have reduced and thickened. Sauce should easily coat the back of a spoon.

  • Step 5

    Serve chicken topped with blueberry compote and enjoy!
