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!

  • Combine mayonnaise and paprika in a bowl; mix well.

  • Mix panko and garlic powder together in another bowl.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Both my husband and I loved this recipe! the chicken was tender and juicy and the panko gave it a nice crisp crust. It did have a mild flavor but the Mayo tang kept it from being boring. Easy enough to add a little extra spice if you want more of a kick! Read More

Absolutely delicious!!! I added garlic salt to the Mayo, and added some basil, parsley and garlic salt to the panko mixture for a bit more flavor. It came out super tasty and very quick and easy to prepare. Will definitely be making this again. Read More

I used chicken tenderloins instead of thighs and non-fat yogurt instead of mayo. It came out great. Delicious. Read More

This recipe was really good-especially loved by my almost three year old grandson who ate an entire large chicken thigh and asked for more! I used whole wheat panko and the chicken was very moist. The coating didn’t adhere to the chicken as well as I had hoped but still it was quick and easy. I will make this again! Read More

My husband would have given this a 3, but I'm giving it a 4 because for families with little kids this would have been better than for adults with a flair for flavor! I started out with 1/2 cup of mayo and added some chipotle mayo rather than paprika( I did add paprika to the top before baking it), and half a cup was right for us with the four thighs. The panko did take the whole 3/4 cup. I wish I would have used some of my favorite Papa's Seasoning from this site before dipping into the panko mixture. Thanks, Brad! Read More

Turned out really good. I used Italian bread crumbs and instead of siping the chicken in the breadcrumbs I just placed the chicken in the baking dish, spread the mayo mix over the top and sprinkled the breadcrumbs over all. Read More

Added seasoned salt to the mayo and the panko and used fresh garlic mixed into the mayo instead of powder. Turned out great! Read More
