Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour


  • cooking spray
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ¾ cup panko bread crumbs or as needed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 bone-in chicken thighs


  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking pan with aluminum foil; coat with cooking spray.
  • Step 2 Combine mayonnaise and paprika in a bowl; mix well.
  • Step 3 Mix panko and garlic powder together in another bowl.
  • Step 4 Spread mayonnaise-paprika mixture on each chicken thigh; press into panko mixture to coat. Place in the prepared baking pan; spritz thighs with cooking spray.
  • Step 5 Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


You may substitute cumin or other seasoning blends for paprika; adjust that seasoning and garlic to taste.
