  • Combine flour, 1 pinch cayenne, 1 pinch garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl.

  • Whisk eggs in a second bowl.

  • Combine panko bread crumbs with 1 pinch cayenne, 1 pinch garlic powder, salt, and pepper in another shallow bowl.

  • Dip chicken thighs into the flour mixture, followed by beaten eggs, and then into the panko mixture. Transfer to the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until coating is golden and chicken thighs are no longer pink in the centers, about 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This is almost identical to the way I make oven fried chicken. It can be used for boneless or any part of the chicken as needed. I use whole wheat panko crumbs, and for the last ten minutes of baking I sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan cheese, and that makes it over the top delicious. Read More

Thighs came out crispy and juicy. I used a baking rack instead of parchment paper. Next time I’ll use less flour, there was so much left over and I’ll add a little more seasoning to the breadcrumbs and flour. Read More

So delicious and easy! We made it gluten-free and used Weber Kick’n Chicken seasoning and Ian’s Gluten-Free panko breadcrumbs on boneless chicken thighs. We’ll be making this again and again! Great recipe! Thank you! Read More

They turned out very good & crispy breading. I would like a little more flavor out of the breading & spices, but the chicken was tender & juicy. Read More

It was pretty good, I used half seasoned pinko and half plain. You’d swear it was fried chicken, I also sprayed it with a little olive oil before baking. Read More
