Crispy mayonnaise chicken thighs with pumpkin bake

  • Author: agardenforthehouse
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Category: Lunch, Dinner
  • Method: Deep-frying
  • Cuisine: American


  • Mayonnaise – a generous tablespoon for each thigh
  • Dry, seasoned breadcrumbs (gluten-free works well here) – a generous tablespoon for each thigh
  • Small- to medium-size bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs – as many as you want


  1. Centre the oven rack, and preheat the oven to 220°C.
  2. Put the mayonnaise and the breadcrumbs in separate bowls to avoid contaminating their containers.
  3. Arrange the chicken pieces on the prepared baking sheet. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Spoon a dollop of the mayonnaise on each thigh, and spread it out with the back of the spoon. Sprinkle on the breadcrumbs, and then press them down with the back of a spoon to glue them in place.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the breadcrumbs turn deep golden brown – about 30 minutes.
