    IngridH's Note:

    From Just This is one of my favorite things to take for lunch! It's so simple, yet the salt brings out the wonderful flavor of the chicken, and crisping the skin in the pan makes it taste even better. I like to salt the chicken the night before, cover, and refrigerate overnight; then cook in the morning, although you could do the whole thing the night before.

      First-rate!! Wish I could give this ten stars! Outstanding flavor and oh so easy to make, could not get boneless skin on thighs so deboned my own which only took a few minutes and again was way easy. This will be made again and again, thanks for the great post.

      Excellent and so very easy! Who would have thought a recipe this simple could taste so darn good? The directions are perfect and the outcome is chicken that is moist on the inside and deliciously crispy on the outside. I couldn't find boneless chicken thighs that had the skin on, so I used a regular chicken thigh and deboned it myself (not really hard to do). I used a small cast iron skillet and it worked beautifully to give the chicken a crispy coating. What a great idea to slice up the chicken and pop it into your to-go lunchbox. Thanks!
