  1. Preheat the oven to 450 F.

  4. Season flour with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Season the breadcrumbs with thyme. Mix each well
  5. Dip each piece of chicken in flour, shake of excess, dip in egg and then into the breadcrumbs. Coat well and press lightly with your hands to make sure breadcrumbs are well coated
