How Long to Cook Chicken Thighs at 400 Degrees
How long to bake chicken thighs at 400 degrees depends on whether they have bones:
- Boneless chicken thighs should be cooked for 20-30 minutes.
- Bone-in chicken thighs should be cooked for 35-40 minutes.
Baking chicken thighs in the oven at 400 degrees means you'll get a crispy exterior and juicy interior without waiting too long for your food to be ready. Just be sure to let them rest a few minutes before you eat, so the juices have a chance to settle into the meat and don't run out when you cut into a piece.
