Baked Cornflake Crusted Chicken

4 bone-in, skinless chicken thighs
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 large egg
2 cups crushed cornflakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, (optional)
1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder, (optional) 
1/4 teaspoon ground sage (optional) 


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse chicken, and pat dry. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk egg with 1 tablespoon water. In a large bowl, mix cornflakes with oil, cayenne, and 1 teaspoon salt.
  3. Working with one piece at a time, dip chicken in egg mixture, then coat with seasoned cornflakes, pressing flakes to help them adhere. Transfer coated pieces to a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving.
