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!"

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. This was a nice moist chicken recipe, I scaled back for 3 serves and used dried breadcrumbs (about 1/2 cup but the full quantity of parmesan and was surprised that the taste wasn't more predominant but maybe that was my using dried breadcrumbs and to get them browned of (as after 35 minutes they still had no colour so put them under the griller/broiler for a few minutes and they browned up nicely. Thank you Nif for a tasty chicken, made for Everyday A Holiday.
  4. We really enjoyed this tonight. I made as directed but at the very end gave them a brief blast under the broiler for a bit of golden color. Very flavorful and tender as well as so easy to do and the rack suggestion is an excellent tip. Made for Went to the Market Tag.
  5. We really enjoyed this! It was one of the easiest and tastiest of the breaded and baked chicken recipes I've tried in a while. I used 2 egg whites in place of the egg (had them from another recipe) and since DH doesn't like dark meat, I cooked one thigh and one breast. Although both were very tasty, the thigh was better :) The flavors of the parm and italian seasoning really came through, and the coating was nicely crisp. Thanks for posting a great recipe!


I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
