Magically crispy chicken

Best oven-baked chicken we've ever tried! I know it seems like unnecessary work, toasting the panko, but it's worth it. I promise.

My kids love this.

Magically crispy chicken
700 g boneless chicken thighs, in smaller pieces
(Chicken breasts works well too)

1 egg yolk
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

500 ml panko (japanese breadcrumbs)
3 tbsp olive oil

Whisk together the egg yolk, mayo, dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Add the chicken to this. Make sure it's evenly coated.

In a large pan, heat the oil. When it's hot, add the panko and toast it until evenly lightly golden brown. Let it cool for a few minutes.

Then, coat the chicken in panko - take one piece at a time, and turn it so that it's well coated all around. Set it on a wire rack over a deep rimmed oven sheet (ideally lined with foil for easy clean up). When all your chicken is coated and positioned on the rack, bake them at 200°C for about 20-25 minutes. They should be golden brown, and cooked through - check to make sure.

Oh my god this just made me salivate a little bit ?!!!! Looks amazing!
Do you think it would work with ordinary breadcrumbs too?
Just found your blog, love it!

Ser supergott ut! Bra ide med att rosta Pankosmulorna. Jag har tidigare följt ett recept från MVK där han tar hälften kokos och hälften panko. Har du testat med kokos någon gång ?

Susanne, jag har inte testat just det här receptet med kokos men jag är säker på att det skulle funka jättebra!
