    For the Chicken
  • 5 medium bone in, skin on chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • For the Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (Not in video but recommended.)
  • For the Breadcrumb Dredge
  • 3/4 cups bread crumbs
  • 2 medium green onions, sliced
  • 1/3 cup powdered parmesan
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (Depending on how much heat you want.)
  1. Lay chicken out on a cutting board and cut 2 slices diagonally down the centre. This will help allow the sauce to sink in and the chicken bake better. 

  2. In a small bowl, combine the butter, garlic, and cayenne (if using in this step). Microwave for a few seconds to melt. Add in the Dijon mustard and mix. Using a brush or spoon, spread the sauce over the chicken on both sides. Set aside. 

  3. In a larger bowl, combine the bread crumbs, onion, Parmesan, paprika, and cayenne. Mix until well combined. 

  4. Pick up the chicken thighs and dredge them in the breadcrumbs until completely covered. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 

  5. Place the chicken into a 425 degree F or 220 C preheated oven for 40 minutes or until cooked. 

  6. Plate, serve, and enjoy your deviled chicken.

  1. Marination Magic: Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors penetrate the meat if you have time. For an even more intense taste, marinate it overnight in the refrigerator.

  2. Adjusting Spice Levels: Feel free to customize the spice level according to your preferences. Add more or less Dijon or cayenne to suit your taste buds.

  3. Choosing the Right Chicken: Opt for bone-in, skin-on chicken pieces for added flavor and moisture. Thighs and drumsticks work exceptionally well in this recipe.

  4. Baking Tips: If you prefer a crispier skin, you can broil the chicken for a few minutes after baking to achieve that golden perfection. Keep a close eye on it to prevent burning.

  5. Serving Suggestions: Pair your Deviled Chicken with a side of roasted vegetables, steamed rice, or a fresh salad for a well-balanced meal. A squeeze of lemon just before serving can enhance the overall taste.

  6. Make it a Meal Prep: This recipe is perfect for meal prepping. Cook a batch on the weekend and enjoy it throughout the week. The flavors tend to deepen over time, making it even more delicious as leftovers.

  7. Experiment with Herbs: Consider adding fresh herbs like cilantro, parsley, or thyme for an extra layer of fragrance and freshness. Garnish just before serving for a pop of color.

  8. Dietary Modifications: Adjust the ingredients to fit your dietary preferences. For a healthier version, you can use skinless chicken or substitute certain ingredients based on your dietary needs.

  9. Sharing is Caring: Share this delightful Deviled Chicken recipe with friends and family. It's a crowd-pleaser, and everyone will be asking for seconds!

  10. Enjoy the Experience: Cooking is not just about the end result but also the joy of the process. Have fun in the kitchen, and don't be afraid to add your own twists to make this recipe uniquely yours!
