  • 5 Cups Chicken Stock

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry using a paper towel.
  3. Continue until all chicken has been dried.
  4. Place dried chicken on a large plate and season presentation side of chicken thigh generously with blackening seasoning.
  5. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and place a few tablespoons of oil to keep from sticking.
  6. Be sure your hood vent is on high while doing this since it will cause a little smoke in the kitchen.
  7. Allow skillet to get smoking hot and place chicken thighs in skillet, seasoning side down.
  8. Cook each chicken thigh for 3-4 minutes before flipping to allow seasoning to darken.
  9. Flip each thigh and cook for another minute.
  10. Place partially cooked thighs on sheet pan and continue the process until all chicken has been partially cooked.
  11. Place chicken in preheated oven and cook for 12-15 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.
  12. Serve thighs on top of chicken rice and top with Romano Cheese. Enjoy!
