How to Make a Roasting Rack


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 
  • Four 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 4 burger buns

How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Rinse the chicken thighs under cold running water then dredge each in the flour.

  2. In a nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Place the chicken thighs in the hot frying pan, giving the pan a little shake as you add each to the pan, to prevent sticking.

  3. Sear the chicken thighs for 5 to 6 minutes per side, until they are browned, are no longer pink in the center and reach an internal temperature of 165°.

  4. Serve on hamburger buns with all of your favorite hamburger toppings.
