DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Season Panko breadcrumbs generously with salt and pepper (around 2 teaspoons each).
  • Add paprika to seasoned crumbs.
  • Pat chicken dry and brush generously with butter.
  • Press chicken into breadcrumbs and thoroughly coat on all sides.
  • Place chicken skin-side-up on a shallow baking pan (I use a baking sheet).
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes until nicely browned and cooked through (at 30 minutes, poke thickest piece of meat with a fork if juices run clear and not pink it's done. If not, check in 10 minute intervals until cooked).
  • Let sit 5-10 minutes before serving so juices can set.
