  • 4 bone-in skinless chicken thighs
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups crushed cornflakes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Rinse chicken, and pat dry. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg with 1 tablespoon water. In a large bowl, mix cornflakes with oil, cayenne, and 1 teaspoon salt.
