Oven-Fried Chicken Thighs

User Rating 1.5 Star Rating (3 Reviews)


These easy chicken thighs are oven-fried, with a coating of instant mashed potato flakes and seasonings.


  • 1 cup instant mashed potato flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/3 cup whole milk or evaporated milk
  • 2 pounds chicken thighs, skin removed, if desired


In a shallow bowl or pie plate, combine potato flakes, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the paprika. Put milk in another bowl. Dip chicken pieces in the milk then coat with the potato mixture, pressing mixture in to coat thoroughly.

Arrange chicken thighs in a 13x9-inch baking pan (skin side up if skin was not removed). Bake in preheated 425° oven for 45 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
Serves 4.

I put a little pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and accent in the mashed potatoes, and then shook the chicken pieces before I put them into the oven. That helped with the bland taste.
