Bless his socks. This is without fail what Funnyman makes me when I need a night off from cooking and he isn’t treating me with his Lamb Ribs (…that man loves his black pepper!) He has perfected it over the years and has implemented little tricks that I shared with him (like the importance of a meat thermometer probe), so I simply love it! There isn’t much to it, its roast thicken thighs covered in (it’s body weight of) freshly ground black pepper prior to cooking. A quick fry on the stove-top skin-side down to render and crisp the fat, then finished in the oven, skin-side up. The accompanying sauce is a mix of mayo and Sriracha and I have included it in the macros because that’s how we enjoy it. If you prefer a ‘stricter’ keto dip, simply stir in homemade chili paste into your mayo.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.
  2. Generously grind fresh black pepper on all sides of the chicken thighs.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a pan and brown the chicken skin-side down until golden and crispy. Transfer the chicken to a tray (skin-side up) and probe the thickest part of one of the thighs with a meat thermometer probe.
  4. Cook in the oven until the thermometer reads 72°C / 160°F, approximately 25-30 minutes.
  5. In the meantime, mix the mayonnaise and the Sriracha in a small bowl.
  6. Remove the chicken from the oven and season with Pink Himalayan Salt. Serve with the Sriracha-mayo. Heavenly…
