Oven Fried Chicken Thighs With Panko and Parmesan

Diana Rattray
Panko crumbs and shredded Parmesan cheese give these chicken thighs a great-tasting, crispy coating.


  • 8 chicken thighs
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons grainy mustard or a spicy mustard
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes


Heat oven to 400°. Line a large baking pan with foil and lightly grease or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Wash chicken thighs and trim excess fat and skin. Remove skin, if desired. Pat dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Combine the melted butter with mustard, honey or syrup, and garlic powder in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine the panko crumbs with shredded Parmesan, paprika, 3/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and parsley.

Brush or rub the chicken thighs with the butter and mustard mixture then press all sides in the panko mixture to coat thoroughly. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced with a fork.

Oven baked panko breaded chicken thighs, Member edcowan

Followed recipe explicitly and ended with very dry chicken.i didn't monitor the chicken temperature but I will next time. I expect that lower temps or less cooking time will give better results.
