Crispy ginger-lime chicken thighs

Serves 4
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes

1 tablespoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger1 tablespoon fresh lime juice2 teaspoons curry powder4 scallions, mincedCoarse salt Ground pepper8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighsDIRECTIONS

Heat your broiler with the rack set 4 inches from heat. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set it aside. In a small bowl, combine ginger, lime juice, curry powder, scallions, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper.

Arrange the chicken on prepared baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Gently loosen the skin from each piece of chicken. Dividing evenly, rub the ginger mixture under the skin. Stuffing the curry mixture under the skin flavors the meat.

Turn the thighs skin side down on baking sheet; broil about 5 minutes. Flip thighs, skin side up, and continue to broil until skin is crisp and an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of the thighs (avoiding bone) registers 165 degrees F. Cook for another 6 to 8 minutes. Serve chicken drizzled with pan juices.
