Notes

  • Always remember that every oven cooks slightly differently. If you're chicken thighs aren't getting golden enough on top, you can raise the rack high in the oven or turn on the top broiler for the last minute or two. Alternatively, if the tops are cooking too quickly, you can lower the rack in the oven or reduce the temperature slightly.
  • If you're looking for some new heavy duty sheet pans that won't warp or twist in the oven, these commercial sheet pans are great!
