We both liked this recipe. Like another comment I read I didn't have cornmeal on hand so I didn't use it, it's good without it. Just two of us so I cut the ingredients in half, worked out fine. I baked them at 350?degrees for forty minutes and they were cooked through. A keeper for sure, will make again.

These were great. I used six, big, bone in, skin on, thighs (about 3 lbs.) and had to double the breading recipe, The chicken turned out so great my picky son took one piece for lunch the next day. I brined the previously frozen thighs, added some poultry seasoning to the breading, and baked at 350 for one hour (because the thighs were bone in and huge) , but no other changes. Recommended recipe. Serve them with oven roasted string beans for a super meal. I only wish I had made gravy out of the schmaltz.

Moist and delicious. I used 4 thighs, just above 2lb total. Wouldn't change a thing.

I used boneless skinless chicken thighs that were some of the best I have ever had. I used italian flavored bred crumbs with the corn meal . The next day cold the thighs were still moist and flavorful. Ii will definitely keep this recipe.

Yummy!!! We used boneless thighs and they came out so tender with a crispy coating. Will make this again.

Very good & easy. We enjoyed this recipe. I doubled it so we would have leftovers. Also used boneless thighs as that's what I had on hand.

This recipe is a winner! Excellent flavor and melt-in-your-mouth juicy chicken! My oven-baked chicken always seems to come out dry, but not with this recipe. And I love that I don't have to eat the skin to get most of the flavor.

Yummm! So easy and delicious. I didn't have any cornmeal so I just used italian seasoned bread crumbs and added some more seasoning to it. My husband loved it! Said it was the best chicken he's had in along time!

This was fast and easy to make and the coating was very tasty. I always appreciate recipes that use ingredients that I have on hand.
