    Preheat Oven 350 degrees: Add one cup of the flour to the cornmeal; add the seasonings and toss. Leave one shallow bowl with the other cup of flour. Set up three shallow bowls; one with the seasoned cornmeal and flour mixture, one with the milk and one with the plain flour. Dip the thighs first in the plain flour, then the milk and finally in the cornmeal flour mixture. Place the chicken thighs in a baking pan and drizzle olive oil over the thighs.
