Crispy Panko Chicken Thighs

Rated as 4.41 out of 5 Stars

"My wife and I sort of invented this recipe, we think. Chicken should have great flavor and the panko breadcrumbs and olive oil will give it a great crunch! Our kids love it (which is high praise in this house). Hope you enjoy as well!"

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking pan with aluminum foil; coat with cooking spray.
  2. Combine mayonnaise and paprika in a bowl; mix well.
  3. Mix panko and garlic powder together in another bowl.
  4. Spread mayonnaise-paprika mixture on each chicken thigh; press into panko mixture to coat. Place in the prepared baking pan; spritz thighs with cooking spray.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


  • Cook's Note:
  • You may substitute cumin or other seasoning blends for paprika; adjust that seasoning and garlic to taste.

My family andilik ed this recipe. I actually did not use mayonaisse and added cayenne spice to pankomix . I enjoyed it even without the mayo.
