Ingredients
  • 8 skinless chicken legs or thighs
  • 1½ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 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
Instructions
  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.
