Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using cooking spray or a little bit of oil, lightly grease a baking sheet and arrange the chicken thighs on it.
Mix seasonings together in a bowl or other container and sprinkle liberally over the thighs. If you feel inclined, you can flip the thighs and sprinkle seasonings on the bottom as well (be sure to flip them back before baking).
Bake in the preheated oven until skin is crispy, juices run clear and thighs are no longer pink at the bone, about 1 hour.
First, rub the chicken with olive oil and seasonings. If cooking on stovetop, save some oil for the pan.
Heat the rest of olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat, place chicken breasts in and cook until edges are opaque, about 10 minutes.
Flip to the other side, then cover the pan, lower the heat and cook for another 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place chicken on broiler pan (recommended) or baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake 15 more minutes (or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit).
Setup oven so top rack is 3-4 inches from heating element.
Set oven to broil and preheat on high.
Broil chicken 3-8 minutes on each side. Actual time will vary based on thickness of breasts and proximity to the heating element.
Finally (and this is important) let the chicken rest for at least 5 minutes before you cut it or all the juice you made the effort to keep in will come running right out, resulting in a flavorless, rubbery mass. When it comes to a juicy chicken breast, patience is a virtue.

Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).
Season chicken on all sides with salt and ground black pepper.
Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in an ovenproof skillet. Place chicken skin-side down in skillet and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
Turn chicken over; stir mushrooms with a pinch of salt into skillet. Increase heat to high; cook, stirring mushrooms occasionally, until mushrooms shrink slightly, about 5 minutes.
Transfer skillet to the oven and cook through, 15 to 20 minutes. Interior temperature should be at least 165 F (74 C). Transfer only the chicken breasts to a plate and loosely tent with foil; set aside.
Set skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat; cook and stir mushrooms until brown bits start to form on the bottom of the pan, about 5 minutes. Pour water into the skillet, and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits off of the bottom of the pan. Cook until water is reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Stir in any accumulated juices from the chicken into the skillet. Stir butter into mushroom mixture, stirring constantly until butter is completely melted and incorporated.
Season with salt and pepper. Spoon mushroom sauce over chicken and serve.
