DRIVEBY Method recipe for the best crispy chicken thighs you'll eat

This is one of those quickie drive by method rather than recipe posts. This doesn't need amounts, it's a how to cook it, measurements aren't required.  Cook what you have, only a few? cook them in a smaller pan.  Got a ton to feed, use a gigantic pan.  I'm all about the easy way out here.

 My local grocery store has chicken thighs on sale frequently.  The bone in, skin on, chicken thighs are the tastiest bit of the chicken, the most tender and has the worst PR.  You can't overcook it, it is delicious, juicy and if you aren't a fan, try it again.



chicken thighs, bone in, skin on
salt, pepper
extra virgin olive oil

Trim excess fat and skin from the thighs but leave enough skin to  cover and protect the meat.
Season both sides with salt and pepper
Place in a lightly oiled pan so they fit closely together.
Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 1 hr and 30 mins. 
YES, and hour and a half, do it.

Don't open the door, mess with the chicken, nothing, just wait then eat.  The skin is shatteringly crisp, potato chip crisp, peel it and eat it.  The meat is tender, soft, juicy, succulent and all those great words you use to describe chicken.

I did a youtube video of the process, I am slowly trying to get my youtube channel organized to be a direct link from here, we'll see how I manage it... In the mean time, just go make this
