Ingredients:


3 T. extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1½ T. Italian seasoning, divided

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium heat.

  3. Rub the chicken thighs with the remaining olive oil and sprinkle both sides with one tablespoon Italian seasoning. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and transfer to the hot skillet.
