Crisp Baked Chicken Thighs

8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 1/2 cups dried breadcrumbs
2 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 tsp. garlic powder
Salt (to taste) (*We recommend starting with 1 tsp.)
Pepper (to taste) (*We recommend starting with 1 tsp.)
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/3 cup melted butter
1 tsp. seasoning salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse chicken and pat dry with a paper towel. Combine the bread crumbs, parsley, garlic powder, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and seasoning salt. Dip the thighs in butter and press into the breadcrumb mixture, coating well. Place the coated thighs into a baking dish (*dish should be sprayed with cooking spray). Bake for 1 hour.

*Johnna’s tip: Serve with corn on the cob or broccoli. This is the best dish when you love fried food, but are trying to avoid it. You get the flavor and light crispness that you want from fried food but the chicken is baked:-) We tried this recipe the other night and paired it with some beets and sweet corn on the cob…try it, it’s good!

    Very tasty, VERY tender (my grandparents loved it, Fixodent and all), and very easy. I substituted cayenne pepper for the seasoning salt. The breading came out a tiny bit soggy, especially on the bottoms, but I’m definitely going to make this recipe again. I might try egg instead of butter and see if the breading is crisper. Thanks!
