You know what I like to do? Crispify things. Yes, crispify is a word. It means to take something non-crispy and make it crispy with the help of a delicious coating.
Ingredients love to be crispified. Trust me, you’re doing the chicken a favor.
Look at all that crispification!
Crispy Tzatziki Chicken
6 chicken thighs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 cup tzatziki sauce (you can use store bought or use my easy recipe)
2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup butter, sliced into 6 pieces
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and place the oven rack in the center position. Butter a 9×13 baking dish.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and then dip in tzatziki sauce and follow with a coating of Panko, make sure to press the Panko onto each piece of chicken to make sure it is thoroughly coated. Place the chicken into the prepared baking dish and repeat with the remaining chicken pieces. Top each piece of chicken with a piece of butter and cover the baking dish with foil.
Bake for one 45 minutes and then remove the foil and baste the chicken pieces with the juices in the pan. Bake uncovered for another 20 minutes to brown the chicken.
