Cheddar-Ranch Chicken Thighs

This recipe is super easy to put together and the result is fantastic.  The mayonnaise makes the chicken so tender that it melts in your mouth!  The flavors are absolutely amazing.  I like to serve this with my cheddar zucchini rice to make it a completely delicious meal. Enjoy!
-4 chicken thighs, skin-on, bone-in
-salt and pepper
-1/2 cup mayonnaise
-1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-3 garlic cloves, minced
-1 (1 oz) envelope ranch seasoning and salad dressing mix
-1/3 cup Italian style Panko crumbs
Preheat oven to 400 F.  Coat 9x13 pan with cooking spray.  
Score the chicken on the skin side.  Season with a little salt and pepper on both sides, then place skin side up in prepared pan.
In a small bowl combine the mayo, cheese, garlic and ranch.  Mix well, then spread evenly on top of chicken thighs.  Sprinkle chicken with Panko crumbs.
Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and chicken is cooked through.
Serve with my cheddar-zucchini rice.  Enjoy!
