Parmesan Baked Chicken Thighs

Aug 15, 2022 | Recipe, Entree

Parmesan cheese acts like breading on these chicken thighs. A great alternative to traditional breading. The melted cheese, spices, and juicy nature of chicken thighs make these delicious! 



reheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a jelly roll pan or rimmed cookie sheet with foil.

Add the More Than Olives Arbequina “Estate” Olive Oil into a shallow bowl. In a separate shallow bowl, add the Parmesan cheese, celery salt, cayenne pepper, paprika, and garlic. Stir the Parmesan mixture until well blended. 

Wash and pat dry each chicken thigh and cut each thigh in half. Dip each piece in the olive oil to cover both sides, then press only one side of the thigh in the Parmesan mixture until coated. Place the thigh on the prepared baking sheet with the coating facing up. Don’t crowd the chicken. 

Bake the thighs in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear. Approximately 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the thigh should read at least 165 degrees F. Remove the chicken thighs as soon as they are done. You want them to remain moist and juicy. If overcooked they will be dry.  

Serve immediately with your favorite side dishes. Enjoy!

Alternative: If you enjoy zesty chicken, try using our More Than Olives Jalapeno Olive Oil in this recipe.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
