Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken

This recipe comes from my mom (which she got from her Better-Homes and Garden Cookbook), it's a keeper for sure! You can use any kind of chicken cut you'd like, but we love it with drumsticks. The chicken is dipped in an egg/milk mixture and then into a seasoned mixture of bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and then baked! Ummmm! This is a great way to make an ordinary piece of chicken have some real flavor!

It's simple and easy to make, so I don't have much else to say, besides, enjoy!

Yield: 12 servings
2 eggs, beaten
¼ cup milk
¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese (real or powdered)
¾ cup dry bread crumbs
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
5 pounds chicken pieces, skinned (breast halves, thighs, or drumsticks)
¼ cup butter or margarine, melted (optional)

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Grease two large baking pans, such as 9x13 casserole dish. In a small bowl, combine egg and milk. In a shallow dish, combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, oregano, paprika, and pepper.

Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture and then into crumb mixture and coat evenly. Arrange the chicken pieces in baking dishes, making sure the pieces don’t touch. Drizzle chicken pieces with melted butter (optional).

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink (170 degree F for breasts; 180 degrees F for thighs and drumsticks). There is no need to turn chicken pieces during baking.

-Baked Potato
-Rice Pilaf
-Roll & Salad
-Steamed Broccoli
