  2. Prepare the seasoning: In a bowl, combine the salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and paprika.
  3. Season boat sides of chicken with the seasoning. Transfer chicken thighs to a baking dish. Cover with foil. Set aside to marinate at least 2 hours (*or see note).
  4. Bake 45 minutes at 375°F. Remove foil and broil for 8-10 minutes (at same temp), until tops of thighs are crispy.
