  • 8 skinless chicken legs or thighs
  • 1½ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 eggs, beaten with 1 tablespoon of water
  • ¾ cup flour, seasoned with a pinch of salt and pepper
  • olive oil mister or cooking spray
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Set up your breading station so you can quickly and easily bread the chicken.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of salt, the paprika, garlic powder, black pepper and the thyme to the panko. Mix it up to combine and distribute the spices.
  3. Season the flour with a pinch of salt and pepper and stir to combine. Beat the eggs and add 1 tablespoon of water to loosen them up a little.
  4. Dip the skinless leg or thigh into the flour, then into the egg, and finally, into the breadcrumbs.
  5. Place the breaded chicken pieces onto a baking sheet lined with a baking rack, and spray them with cooking spray on both sides.
  6. Bake the chicken for 40-45 minutes, until golden, crunchy, and cooked through. Flip the chicken once throughout cooking. Serve hot.
