I call this the best chicken thigh recipe becauce it’s super easy to make and contains all my favorite ingredients. I LOVE cauliflower and especially when it’s oven baked. And together with grapes, almonds and a yummy basil dressing this dish just rock my world.
Huge fan of cauliflower
I’m actually that big a fan of cauliflower that I literally always have it in my fridge. The best thing is when it’s cauliflower season here in Denmark and I can get them “almost” straight from my neighbours’ garden.
But I can settle with the organic ones from the south European countries any other time of the year, so I can make my favorite Pizza with cauliflower crust or of course my best chicken thigh recipe.

THE best chicken thigh recipe is super easy to make
This chicken recipe takes no time to prep. About 15 minutes and then you can sit and relax with a glass of wine, while the food is cooking in the oven. Love that. That’s how I like to cook!
The 3 main ingredients just goes into the same dish and then bake for 45 minutes. Dinner is ready in an hour and the time you used for prepping was minimal.
Also the ingredients are very child friendly. My son, who’s 2, loves chicken, cauliflower AND grapes, so this dish is a total win for him. And if he’s happy I am too, which you’ll probably would have guessed.
