Chicken thighs are an underrated and more flavourful cut of chicken. This is a simple baked recipe that coats them in basil, breadcrumbs and Parmesan.
Made it healthier. As a Weight Watcher, I was concerned about the number of POINTS values this recipe had...it had 10 per serving. If you use only egg white, instead of an egg; nonfat yoghurt instead of cream (25 grams of fat down to 0); 2 tbsp of olive oil in a nonstick pan; and chicken breasts instead of the dark meat, you knock the points down to 6 per serving. It tastes just as great...and it almost knocks the fat out of the recipe. - 08 Oct 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Tasty chicken recipe, the breading mixture comes out nice and crispy. I added 4TBS more cheese to the crumb mixture and 1 tbs extra basil. - 08 Oct 2008
This is the best chicken recipe! It tastes just like something you'd get at an Italian restaurant. The fresh basil makes it fantastic! I use the leftover egg mixture and crumb mixture to coat zucchini and fry them up after - makes excellent zucchini sticks as a side dish! Oh, I use half olive oil and half vegetable oil just to mellow out the flavour. This is SOOO good. If I could give it 6 stars I would. - 08 Oct 2008
