Nif's Parmesan Chicken Thighs

Made this up for company tonight and we really liked the results. The fresh bread crumbs and fresh parmesan really made this dish. I recommend cooking them on a rack so the coating is nice and crispy. Enjoy!

This might be the best chicken I've ever made. The chicken was moist and perfectly done. Some modifications I made were not spritzing it with olive oil (too lazy), and instead finished it another 2-3 minutes under the broiler. It got nice and brown that way! Also, I used honey panko breadcrumbs from Costco instead of fresh breadcrumbs. Sooo delicious. This will definitely be a household staple.

It came out very good! Had to cook it for an extra 10 minutes cause my oven is older but my mom and I enjoyed it very much. Served it with a side of spaghetti and mariana sauce (which I highly recommend). Can't wait to make it again. Thanks!

Very easy and tasty! The chicken was very moist and browned nicely (you have to do the spritz of oil over the coating to get them to brown properly, so don't skip it :) ) Will be making this often, as we prefer thigh meat to breast meat in dishes like this. Thanks for this keeper.
