Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a shallow dish, whisk together the corn flakes, flour and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt. Season the chicken thighs with remaining 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Dredge seasoned chicken thighs in beaten egg whites, then coat with crumb mixture, pressing to adhere. Place on a prepared baking sheet and brush with vegetable oil.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip the chicken thighs and continue to bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  4. While the chicken bakes, heat the honey, sriracha, butter and rice vinegar in a small saucepan until the butter melts. Whisk the ingredients to thoroughly combine. Set aside and keep warm.
  5. Drizzle the honey sriracha glaze over hot chicken and garnish with sliced scallions.

    *Tip: Serve this with fluffy white rice and steamed broccoli for a complete meal.
