Breaded Chicken Thighs

Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner! I get a lot of request for more chicken recipes. I love sharing chicken recipes because I feel like that a lot of house holds make chicken on the regular. It’s a healthier protein and can be used in so many different ways and meals.

These breaded chicken thighs are delicious and a nice switch up from a regular chicken breast. If you like the darker meat of the chicken, give this recipe a try!

Breaded Chicken Thighs

Ingredients:
8 chicken thighs ( boneless & skinless)
1 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 eggs
1 T Italian seasoning
1/2 T garlic powder
1/2 T onion powder
2 t salt
2 t pepper
1/2-3/4 cup grated Romano/Parmesan cheese
2-3 T olive oil

Direction: Preheat oven 375°. In medium bowl mix together the bread crumbs, seasoning and cheese. In another bowl add in 2 eggs, salt and pepper and whisk together.

Grease a baking dish or baking pan with cooking spray. Pat the chicken thighs dry. Dip the chicken thigh into the egg mixture and then into bread crumbs fully coating the chicken add to baking dish. Continue with remaining chicken. Once all chicken thighs are breaded drizzle with olive oil. Bake in the oven about 30-40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°. Let rest a few minutes before serving.

Note: You can do this with skinless chicken thighs as well. Just keep in mind that it will take longer for the bone-in thighs to cook, I’d say probably about 45-50 minutes. Use an instant thermometer for accuracy.
