Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken

I found this recipe on yahoo and since we had everything for it, decided to give it a whirl. I changed a few things up (the oregano was supposed to be fresh and the parmesan cheese wasn’t supposed to be out of a jar lol). The breasts were rather large so I pounded them down a bit, and they turned out really juicy. It turned out really good and mom and John both really enjoyed it, which says a lot because John isn’t a big fan of chicken. I will link the recipe I found at the bottom, but I’m going to post here how I did it. Might I add, that fried potatoes work really well with this recipe as a side dish. 

cook time~45-55 minutes

2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup Milk
3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup finely ground up saltines mixed with 1/2 cup of finely ground up bread crumbs 
(I didn’t have any store bought bread crumbs)
2 tsp. Oregano
1 tsp. Paprika
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Chicken (I used boneless chicken breasts, 2 large ones, each one cut in half.) 
1/4 cup butter or margarine

Preheat oven 375.

1. Combine egg and milk in one bowl. Beat together well.
2. Combine bread crumbs, paprika, pepper, oregano, parmesan cheese into another bowl. 
(I added a hint of garlic powder as well, I love garlic)
3. Dip chicken into egg mixture, brush away any extra egg, and coat in bread crumb mixture.
4. Arrange in baking pan, making sure they do NOT touch each other.
5. Drizzle chicken with the melted butter.
6. Bake 45-55 minutes. Do NOT turn pieces during baking.
