Crispy Panko Chicken Thighs

Rating: 4.5 stars 69
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!

Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 515
I've been making this recipe for so many years, I can't remember where I got it from. It's really quick to throw together. After fixing it several times, my husband 'discovered' that you were supposed to spread the garlic on the chicken. It's one of his favorites now. This recipe is very easy to adjust up or down. Just make sure your pan is big enough if adjusting up. I usually add more potatoes, since we like them. Serve with a mixed greens salad.

Baked Italian Chicken Thighs

Rating: 5 stars 55
These juicy chicken thighs are topped with a flavorful blend of three cheeses and your favorite marinara sauce. Serve over pasta or rice or alongside roasted potatoes for a tasty weeknight meal. I like to shred my own cheese, as I find it melts better, but feel free to use pre-shredded to save time.

This is a one pan meal that's in the oven in 15 minutes. Rosemary, garlic, and oregano create a mouth watering aroma. If using dried herbs in place of fresh, use 1/3 the amount. Potatoes are crispy like french fries, just serve with ketchup. Kids just love this!
