One packet of chicken thighs (or enough to feed everybody), some butter, garlic, dijon mustard, cayenne pepper, paprika, panko breadcrumbs, fresh chives and parmesan cheese. You can use parsley if you like, and also pre-grated parmesan cheese if you couldn’t be bothered grating it.

Firstly, you need to melt the butter, then mix in the garlic and mustard. Then in another bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with parmesan, chives and spices. Get a baking tray ready too.
