Breaded Baked Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
I've always loved the smell of chicken baking in the oven! And, I especially love it when I am using the boneless skinless chicken thighs because there are obviously no bones!

You will find that my recipe is a sort of mock-breaded in that I love using Italian Style bread crumbs.

No bones about it, you know? Perhaps you will like it too?

Sharing one of my easy to make comfort food recipes.

You know, chicken is one of my favorite comfort foods that is so easy to prepare? If I was a vegetarian, I would seriously miss my baked chicken!

When I was married, we had chicken thighs a couple of times during the week. However, they were usually prepared on the outside gas grill or inside on our finished patio on the fancy Jenn-Air Barbecue Grill.

Chicken thighs are so versatile to prepare. I love their perfect little size that you can use a knife or eat them with your fingers.

I personally like to use Vigo Italian Style Bread Crumbs for my breading. You'll find a lot of prepared breading mixes at your grocers, but this is the one I use! Along with the same brand of olive oil.

Plus, my main side dish has long been one of the Uncle Ben's packets of rice. They only take 90 seconds in the microwave and really are quite good. Lately, I've been enjoying the Quinoa and Brown Rice with Garlic. It has quite the interesting texture! ~ The Comfort Foods Ambassador, Jaguar Julie!

You know, I've been using the Vigo brand of products for years. It seems to make sense to use those bread crumbs with their olive oil. Rather a synergistic effect on taste; Italian Style!

My recipe is actually like a mock breaded option.

I Love Corningware and Corelle!

Who doesn't love Corningware, I ask? Would you believe, I think my set is over 40 years old! I seriously can't believe it ... they say this stuff is indestructible and that it will probably outlive you and me. I believe it!

I am one of the many home cooks who rely on my Corningware casserole set for baking. The cornflower pattern is like a vintage collectible. I think it is a right of passage that each homemaker start off with such a set.

Get your own Corningware StoveTop 4-pc PYROCERAM Blue Cornflower Casserole Set!


You probably recognize this dinner plate in my photos. I honestly love love love my Corelle Bamboo Leaf Square Round 16-Piece Dinnerware Set, Service for 4! When I bought it in June 2009 from Amazon, as soon as it arrived, I purchased a second set! Yep, it is that stylish.

You get 4 dinner plates, 4 luncheon plates, 4 soup/cereal bowls, and 4 mugs. It is made of Vitrelle glass that is dishwasher and microwave safe! You will love the bamboo leaf design and the square shape.

Keep an eye on your guests so that they don't try to take it home with them.
