  • 4 pounds chicken thighs bone-in, skin-on
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ginger powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon white pepper
  1. Rinse chicken then pat dry with paper towels.

  2. In a bowl combine the mayonnaise, garlic powder, ginger powder, salt, white pepper, dried thyme, dried basil, onion powder, and chicken bouillon powder.

  3. Rub the mayonnaise mixture all over the chicken ensuring it gets to every nook and cranny of the chicken. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap and marinate in the fridge up to overnight or place in the oven to cook immediately.

  4. Set the oven to broil. Place the chicken on a large greased baking sheet - skin side down.

  5. Broil for 30 minutes, take out the baking sheet and flip the chicken to be skin side up. Broil for another 10 minutes.

  6. Serve warm with your favorite side dish.

Recipe Notes

1. If your chicken is significantly bigger than 4 pounds (maybe close to five pounds) then add a pinch of salt to the salt the recipe calls for. This will help ensure that the chicken is properly seasoned.

2. I recommend that you set your oven to broil instead of bake. Setting the oven to broil cooks the chicken at a higher heat and roasts the chicken instead of baking it. This makes the chicken taste like it was grilled on the grill outside.
