1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (finely chopped)

Preheat the oven to 375F.

Mix together the cheese, herbs, onion powder, chilli flakes and black pepper.
Step 3
Place the melted butter onto a plate. Dip a chicken thigh into the butter, then into the cheese mixture. Place in a baking dish.

Repeat with the remaining chicken thighs. Press any remaining cheese mixture on top of the chicken.

Personally, I’d also top with mushrooms & spinach that I’d sauteed in butter & garlic.
