Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Crisp-tender chicken with the most amazing Parmesan crust and a lemony-herb sauce!

I made these parmesan crusted scalloped potatoes for the holidays several years back when I couldn’t help but wonder how amazing that crust would be using chicken. After all, how can you go wrong with anything involving a Parmesan crust?

So that’s what I did here. I took some pantry herbs and some freshly grated Parmesan, searing these bad boys on a hot pan and finishing them right in the oven along with some lemon juice for that refreshing goodness. And remember, fresh Parmesan is best here. I recommend staying far away from that green can.

And yes, that crust is every good as you imagine it to be – so crisp on the outside yet so tender with every bite. Now if everything else could have this crust, I’d be set!

Crisp-tender chicken with the most amazing Parmesan crust and a lemony-herb sauce!


  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

For the parmesan crust

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together chicken stock, lemon juice and lemon zest; set aside.
  4. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Add chicken stock mixture.
  5. Place into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 175 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes. Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown.
  6. Serve immediately.
