  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Combine panko, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

  • Place chicken thighs onto the prepared baking sheet and coat each side with pesto. Press panko mixture onto chicken.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
