Lust in the Dust Chicken

This baked chicken features tastes of the southwest with a bit of Italian mixed in. Immediately bringing to mind the great “spaghetti westerns”. Well why not spoof them with this dish & the movies with the cult classic: “Lust in the Dust" with Tab Hunter!
A dance-hall girl played by Divine was lost in the desert. She finds a gunman played by Tab Hunter. They stumble into the small town of Chili Verde, NM. There at the saloon run by Lainie Kazan, they hear of a lost treasure in gold! Hilariously over-played by all this pokes fun at the genre as well as the old screen persona of Tab Hunter himself!

Chicken thighs coated in seasonings and baked in buttermilk! Easy to pull off and fun as well as delicious.

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • In a small bowl, combine paprika, oregano, garlic powder and onion powder; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Season chicken thighs with spice mixture, rubbing in thoroughly on all sides.

  • Melt butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from heat and stir in buttermilk.

  • Place into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 175 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Serve chicken immediately, garnished with basil, if desired.

Hope you get a kick out of this happy dish.
