Oven fried Chicken Thighs

This a quick weeknight dinner fix.  I got the recipe from an online blog called "The Cookbook Junkie".  The breading is crunchy and it looks very much liked "fried chicken", but it is oven baked.
  • 8 boneless, skinless, chicken thighs
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1 C. cornmeal mix
  • 1 T. kosher salt
  • 1 T. paprika
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • ½ t. cayenne pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Place bacon on paper towels and microwave for 45 seconds
  3. Season the chicken with salt and Creole seasoning
  4. Wrap the bacon around the chicken thigh, securing with toothpicks
  5. In a medium bowl, mix the cornmeal mix, salt, paprika, and cayenne
  6. Roll the chicken thighs in the cornmeal seasoning mixture
  7. Place thighs on a baking rack that has been sprayed with cooking spray
  8. Place the baking rack on a cookie sheet
  9. Bake for 45 minutes
  10. Serve immediately
 Tips and Tricks:
  • I buy boneless, skinless, chicken thighs at Sam’s.  They are packed with 5 in each pack.
  • The bacon should not be cooked through or crispy.  Watch it carefully, you want it to start to change color slightly, but still be pliable.
