I have a weird confession – I hate condiments.
Ketchup, mustard (which, admittedly, I am allergic to), sour cream, mayonnaise, relish – I genuinely loathe all condiments.
I especially hate salad dressing (the thick and creamy kinds, not specifically vinaigrettes. I love those.), which is sad, because I LOVE ranch dressing seasonings.
There is something about the tangy, zippy, bright, and salty ranch seasoning herbs that are totally addictive and crave-able – I can’t get enough!

How To Cook Perfect Baked Chicken Thighs
Pat chicken thighs dry with paper towels
Extra liquid and moisture on the chicken will keep the thighs from crisping.
Don’t trim the fat too much.
While you might want to trim off excessive fat, some fat is good on chicken thighs, even if you don’t usually like chicken fat. We’re cooking these chicken thighs long enough for the fat to render out and help make a crispy, crunchy outer crust – so don’t over-trim your chicken thighs.
Let chicken thigh skin crisp.
If you’re looking for additional crunchy chicken (especially important since we’re using skinless, boneless chicken thighs), you can pop the chicken thighs under the broiler for 2-4 minutes – be careful and watch the chicken closely to make sure it doesn’t burn.
Unroll your chicken thighs.
If you’re often not a fan of chicken thigh texture, unroll the chicken thighs so they lay flat. This will cook the chicken thighs more evenly, and ensure a crunchy surface on the entire thigh – which makes it completely irresistible, and a bit easier for people who usually shy away from dark meat chicken.
