So can you tell I opened a bag of panko recently?
These crispy thighs are amazing. I can't remember where I originally got the recipe, but I have made very few changes.
Crispy crumbed chicken
Cut skinless chicken thigh fillets into chunks (I usually cut each fillet into 3) and marinate in Greek yoghurt flavoured with crushed garlic and lemon zest for as long as you've got (I put these into the marinade before work with the intention of eating them that night but then ate them the next day).
Remove the thighs from the marinade, toss in seasoned breadcrumbs (yay panko!) place in a single layer in a baking tray, drizzle with a little olive oil and bake at 200C for about 30 minutes or until cooked through and crispy. Serve with a lemony salad and a squeeze more lemon juice.
I also had some mushrooms sauteed with bacon and garlic on the side because I had a rasher left over from breakfast the other day that I couldn't freeze again and wouldn't waste.
Minimum effort and very tasty - a real crowd pleaser. We agreed that next time I made this I would put some grated parmesan in with the panko.
