At The Purple Pig in Chicago, they skewer squares of skin-on boneless chicken thighs and pan-fry them to perfect crispness. Though a delight to eat, it’s not so fun boning thighs at home. Fortunately, you can get similar crackly skin with bone-in thighs and hands-off roasting in a very hot oven.

Recipe is not correct. 2lbs of chicken thighs is about 4 small to medium thighs. 1 Tbs under the skin of each thigh is 4 Tbs. The amount of spice plus salt does not add up to that amount plus extra to mix with marinade. Using 1 tsp per thigh plus remainder mixed with oil, when cooked, left the chicken over spiced and an oil slick, even when patted dry as recommended. When using a temperature of 450 degrees for 40 45 minutes make sure you have a new battery in your smoke detector, your extinguisher at the ready and the fire department on speed dial! Did anyone even try to cook this recipe before printing it?
I agree, 450 is too high and I have an oven than runs a little cool. Mine seemed a bit overcooked (though skin was nice and crispy!). Next time I make these I will not use the additional 1/2 tsp of salt before baking. Saltiness almost overwhelmed the garlicky flavor. May even cut back the salt a bit in the rub.
These were excellent, served for a casual dinner party and worked well. I did 425 degrees and used a meat thermometer. It took less than 30 minutes to cook.
As everyone else noted. 450 is too much heat. 425 convection was plenty for 40 minutes. They were delicious and crispy but beg for a sauce of some kind.
