Even though boneless skinless chicken thighs are used on this recipe, you can still use bone-in chicken thighs or even chicken breast. Why boneless thighs? Because they cook faster and you can just cut through them and eat, so this makes everything so much easier!

With the bone-in chicken thighs, you have to worry about removing the bacon and then the bones when eating. This way you cave time for cooking.

You can use your favorite chicken seasoning in this recipe, like a simple combination of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. These spices are probably already available in your pantry.

You can add a little bit of Vegeta’s all-purpose seasoning. It is a Croatian spice, that consists of salt and dehydrated vegetables. It is completely optional to use. Keep in mind, that it has salt in it. If you prefer not to use it,  just add more salt chicken thighs. How much salt? Just between 1/8 and 1/4 teaspoons. You can also use dehydrated vegetable stock.
