Broiled Chicken Thighs and Asparagus with Lime and Jalapeno
Broiled chicken should be the kind of weeknight staple you can depend on. Add asparagus and you have a one-pan meal that pulls together quickly.
Why This Recipe Works
We figured out the best way to broil our chicken thighs for our broiled chicken thighs recipe: By cooking the chicken first at a distance, then directly under the element, we achieved both perfectly cooked meat and crisp, golden skin. We found it necessary to start the chicken skin side down and then flip it to crisp the skin. To get really crisp skin for our broiled chicken thighs recipe, we discovered that it was best to slash it several times with a paring knife, which allowed excess fat to render and flow free as the meat cooked.
