Remember I mentioned my husband is fussy? Well this household has about 95% of their meals with Chicken! Yes, that is mostly all he will eat. So it puts me into a spot to come up with as many ways to eat chicken as possible; while still being healthy and tasting great.
These coated chicken thighs (or breasts if you prefer) can be made in a batch and refrigerated for those that like to prep meals or if you take lunches to work. They go great with salads or veggies. Think… giant sized healthy nuggets!
What you will need…
- 1kg Chicken Thigh Fillets
- 2-3tbs Chia Seeds
- 1 cup Panko Crumbs
- Moroccan Seasoning (You can use any spice combo you prefer, ie. lemon spice)
- 3 Eggs, whisked
- 1/2 cup Flour
- 1tbs Olive Oil
The first process is to grab 3 bowls;
In one bowl, add the flour. Another whisk the 3 eggs; and the last bowl place the panko crumbs, chia seeds and spices and mix together.
Grab your chicken thighs and start coating 🙂 (At this stage you can cut your thighs if you prefer smaller pieces but I coat them whole)
Coat your chicken in the flour first, ensuring both sides are covered. Dust off excess.
Now cover both sides of the chicken with the egg, let the excess drip off.
Lastly, cover both sides in the crumb and spice mixture. Shake off excess.
Place the chicken pieces on a lined baking tray and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Bake for about 35-45 minutes at 180 degrees until golden brown. ENJOY!
Let me know what you think 🙂
