MONDAY RECIPE POST - BAKED CHICKEN THIGHS - SERVES 4

I made this recipe - found here at Food.com - for the first time on Saturday, September 8th, 2014.  We were heading out to the Shenandoah Mountains for a Sunday road trip along Skyline Drive. I thought it would be nice to take along a simple picnic, and made the chicken the night before. We found an overlook and a nice stone wall that served as seats and table, with an overlook of the Shenandoah Valley.  There was no one else the whole time we had our picnic.  The ice-chest between us, a more perfect setting we couldn't have found that day, and the chicken tasted great along with a glass of ice-cold, bubbly water.  A simple but very tasty recipe.

Baked Chicken Thighs - serves 4

8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
5 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Melt the butter in a skillet, remove from heat and mix in the mustard.

On a plate combine the fresh breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.

Dip chicken into the butter/mustard mixture and then into the breadcrumbs, making sure chicken is well coated.

Place the chicken in a 9 inch by 13 inch baking dish and bake for 45 minutes.  (Note: if you use the legs with the thigh connected, use more time to cook.)




What did we think of this recipe?  Very yummy and it was good hot or cold.  

We took half in the ice-chest for our picnic and had the other half for dinner later that evening.  I added a grilled tomato and egg noodles. Fast, easy and very tasty.

No changes this time and stuck to the recipe.

  9. Boneless skinless chicken thighs are my go-to dinner plan these days -- I always have them on hand (they thaw quickly). Oven roasted or baked dinners are my favorite way to cook really and these babies cook so quickly it is almost like a fast-food meal but tastes so much better. I'll bookmark this recipe!!

    1. Hi Debbie, it is very tasty hot or cold, and love it in sliced for sandwiches. I also make a leftover breast into chicken salad. That's good too. Thank you!
