4-5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 1.5 lbs)
1 cup breadcrumbs (panko or regular)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 eggs, beaten
Olive oil spray
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, dried thyme, dried rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create the seasoned breadcrumb mixture.
Dip each chicken thigh into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off.
Coat the chicken thighs in the seasoned breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the breadcrumbs to the chicken.
Place the coated chicken thighs on the prepared baking sheet.
Lightly spray the tops of the chicken thighs with olive oil spray. This will help them become crispy in the oven.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is golden and crispy.
Remove the chicken thighs from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
Serve your Crispy Baked Parmesan Herb Chicken Thighs with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a fresh salad.
Optional Extra Step: Before serving, you can drizzle a touch of honey or balsamic glaze over the chicken thighs for added flavor and visual appeal. Capture this moment in your YouTube video to showcase the final touch.
