- We love to make this with all of the seasonings, but it's just as good with just salt and pepper.
- Chicken thighs and drumsticks are the best as they will keep juices and flavors the most.
- If using boneless skinless chicken breasts, lower the temperature to 400 and bake for 25 minutes.
- Make sure the internal temperature is 165 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure the chicken is fully cooked.
