Baked Chicken Thighs alla Nonna
Source: Orlando Sentinel
Food Group: Poultry
|12 piece(s) Cleaned & trimmed chicken thighs|
|2 tablespoon(s) Olive Oil|
|2 cup(s) Seasoned Breadcrumbs|
|3 cup(s) Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese or 4 Savory Italian Cheese Combo|
|2 Eggs (Ex. Large or Jumbo)|
Preheat oven to 425
Spread olive oil evenly over the surface of a large baking dish
Combine breadcrumbs and grated cheese in a large bowl. NOTE: You may choose to add additional garlic powder and/or onion powder to this coating mix. I did and loved it! :o)
Beat eggs in a separate bowl
Rince chicken and pat dry. Dip in egg wash then breadcrumb/cheese mix to coat thoroughly on both sides, pressing crumbs into the surface.
Salt and pepper to taste and place skin side up in prepared pan.
Bake 40-50 minutes until nicely browned. NOTE: Some ovens bake hotter than others, so I checked for an internal temp of 165 to measure proper cooking time.
Remove from oven and let stand a few minutes before serving.
