This recipe could be made using boneless/skinless chicken breasts, but thighs stand up to the heat of frying much better, have more flavor and are juicier. They have a bit more fat, but I think it is worth it.
Herb-Crusted Chicken Thighs
8 boneless/skinless chicken thighs
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons of your preferred herb/herb blend (I used Penzey’s Tuscan Sunset.)
5 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1. Mix panko crumbs and herbs. Press chicken thighs into this, coating both sides.
2. Heat large non-stick skillet. Spray with cooking spray.
3. Place chicken thigh in skillet. You may need to make two separate batches.
4. Pan fry over medium heat, approximately 5 minutes. Turn over and fry another 5 minutes.
5. Remove from skillet and finish remaining thighs.
6. While thighs are cooking, combine cheese, oil and lemon juice, stirring to make a thick sauce.
Serve 1 tablespoon sauce on each thigh.
