Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 475º degrees.
  2. Heat 12-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat on stove or cook top. Drizzle in olive oil and heat, but do not overheat to allow it to smoke. Sprinkle salt and pepper on chicken thighs and place the chicken, skin-side down (if not using skinless) into skillet. Cook 2 minutes or until chicken skin has browned. Turn and reduce heat to medium. Cook chicken until fat has rendered off, about 10-12 more minutes.
  3. Sprinkle chicken with paprika, nestle in sliced garlic cloves throughout chicken thighs, and top with thyme sprigs (or bottled spice).
  4. Place in oven and roast until chicken is fork tender, about 15-20 more minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to rest for about 5 minutes.
