Roasted Chicken Thighs with Fresh Thyme

I wanted a healthy and flavorful chicken dish to pair with the risotto I was making for dinner. I grabbed some boneless/skinless chicken thighs then simply seasoned them with fresh thyme leaves, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. The chicken cooked for a few minutes on the stovetop then finished in the oven. It turned out really moist, tender, flavorful, and healthy. We all enjoyed the chicken and it paired nicely with risotto and salad I served it with.
