I saw a recipe on Simply Scratch that looked delicious. I adapted the recipe by adding a bit more spices, a little less olive oil, and chicken thighs instead of breasts. The spicy flavor combination was excellent and the chicken turned out moist, tender, and delicious. These chipotle cumin chicken thighs can either be served as is or chopped up and used in tacos. This is a quick and easy recipe that took only minutes to make – perfect when you don’t have time to marinate.
How to Make Chipotle Cumin Chicken Thighs
Combine the cumin, sea salt, garlic powder, chipotle chile powder, coriander, onion powder, and oregano together in a bowl. Drizzle in the olive oil and mix until well combined.
Slather both sides of the chicken thighs with the mixture.
Heat a grill pan that’s been coated in cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add the chicken thighs to the HOT pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip the thighs over and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the grill pan and let the meat rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy.
