  • 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.

  • 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°.

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