Crumb-Coated Chicken Thighs

Recipe Adapted From:


* 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon ground cumin
* 1 teaspoon paprika
* 1 teaspoon chili powder
* 1 teaspoon curry powder
* 1/4 teaspoon pepper
* 8 (5 ounce) chicken thighs, skin removed


1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first seven ingredients. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. Place on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. Turn chicken pieces; bake 15-20 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 180 degrees F.

Notes & Tips:
The original recipe calls for regular dry bread crumbs, I'm sure it would be very tasty. I didn't have any in my cupboard so I used what I had. I also substituted Chipolate Chili Powder for regular since I had that too. I served this with a side of Savory Mushrooms, which I will be posting tomorrow.
