– 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
– 1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
– 2 garlic cloves, minced
– 1 teaspoon onion powder
– 1 teaspoon ground cumin
– 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs


1. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, oregano, garlic, onion powder and cumin.
2. Place chicken thighs in a shallow glass dish or resealable plastic bag.
3. Pour marinade over chicken and rub it all over so that each piece is evenly coated with the herbs and spices. Cover or seal dish (or bag) and let marinate for 30 minutes in refrigerator or at room temperature.
4. Heat up a grill pan over medium heat until hot. Remove each piece of chicken from marinade and place on grill pan in one layer; cook for 4 minutes on each side until nicely browned and cooked through (internal temperature reaches 165°F).
5. Remove cooked chicken from pan onto cutting board; press down firmly on each piece with spatula (this will help release more flavor). Serve warm with your favorite side dishes.

Not only does this recipe honor the beloved traditions of Home Cooking but also brings an interesting twist to things thanks to its unique cooking method – pressing – which helps infuse all those flavors into the meat even further!
