Using a cast iron skillet means these blackened ranch chicken thighs take only a few minutes to cook. Great for a weeknight dinner.

Directions

  • Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Rub 1 tablespoon dry ranch dressing, salt, and fresh cracked pepper onto 1 side of chicken thighs. Flip and repeat on the other side.

  • Place chicken thighs, skin-side down, into the hot oil. Cook over medium heat without moving to blacken skin, about 12 minutes. Turn chicken thighs and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 12 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I'm sure as a single male I'll be blamed BUT your recipe did not say to use 1 tablespoon of Ranch dry rub so I used reg ranch dressing = not so good, eatable but certainly not a crispy skin !! Read More

I am the submitter of this recipe and I see that a reviewer mistakenly used ranch dressing. This recipe calls for 'ranch dressing mix (such as Hidden Valley)' which is a dry mix. Usually found in an envelope or a plastic jar. I hope this clarifies what ingredient should be used. Read More
