Parmesan Crumbed Baked Chicken Thighs

We made this for a summer luncheon picnic, and it was a huge hit!

Servings: 6

For the chicken:
12 Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
3/8 Cup Dijon-style Mustard
1 1/2 Tablespoons White Wine
1 1/2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
For the coating:
1 1/2 Cups Freshly Grated Parmesan
1 1/2 Cups Panko Bread Crumbs
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Fresh Oregano, chopped
1 1/2 Tablespoons Lemon Zest
3/8 Cup Melted Butter

  • For the chicken: Rinse the thighs, trim them and cut them in half; pat them dry.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk together the mustard, wine, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and add the chicken. The chicken can be coated immediately or held in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours.
  • For the coating: In a large, shallow dish, mix the cheese, breadcrumbs, oregano, lemon zest and pepper. Drizzle the melted butter over the crumb mixture and toss until well combined.
  • To coat and cook the chicken: Heat the oven to 375°F and spray olive oil on a baking sheet covered with a non-stick sheet.
  • Take a piece of chicken from the marinade with one hand--this is now your "wet" hand. Don't wipe off the marinade.
  • Lay the chicken on the crumbs. Scoop and pat the crumbs over the chicken using your other hand (your "dry" hand), patting until both sides are thoroughly coated.
  • Put the chicken on a oiled baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken.
  • Roast the chicken until it's crisp, browned, and cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Turn the chicken over after 15 minutes.
