Baked Chicken Thighs Coated With Corn Flake Crumbs Reccipe
I love them so much that I make them often. Sriracha adds almost no heat (mostly flavor), so don’t worry about spiciness. For overall crispiness, I usually cook the thighs on a rack set in a foil-lined half pan. And don’t skip the sugar because it helps the coating stick to the chicken. By the way, Kellogg’s® Corn Flakes® are usually sold in supermarkets near the breadcrumbs and breading mixes, not in the cereal aisle.
Baked chicken thighs coated with cornflake crumbs is a simple yet delicious dish that’s perfect for a weeknight dinner or a family gathering. Here’s a recipe you can follow:
- 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
- 2 cups corn flakes
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Cooking spray
- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a food processor, pulse the corn flakes until they’re finely crushed. Add paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Pulse a few more times to combine the spices with the cornflakes.
- Spread the flour on a plate. In a separate shallow bowl, beat the eggs.
- Coat each chicken thigh in flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip each thigh in the beaten egg, making sure it’s fully coated.
- Roll each thigh in the cornflake mixture, pressing the crumbs onto the chicken to make sure they adhere.
- Place the chicken thighs on the prepared baking sheet, skin-side up.
- Spray the chicken lightly with cooking spray to help the coating crisp up in the oven.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is golden brown and crispy.
- Let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
