Crunchy Baked Chicken Recipe

I love fried chicken, but I don’t love all the extra calories and fat that come with it.  This chicken is so crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside that you just might think you are eating fried chicken.  It is full of flavor and our whole family devoured it!


Crunchy Baked Chicken Recipe:
(Serves 4-6)
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 (2.8 ounce) can of french-fried onions, crushed
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4-5 chicken breasts, cut up
1/4 cup butter, melted
In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg and milk.  In another bowl, combine the crushed onions, cheese, bread crumbs, paprika, salt and pepper.  Dip chicken in the egg mixture, then roll in the onion mixture.  Place coated chicken pieces in a greased baking dish.  Drizzle melted butter on top of chicken.  Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until cooked thoroughly.

    Loved this recipe! I cut the chicken breasts in half and only baked them for about 40 minutes and the chicken was nice and moist. It was a huge hit with my family, it didn’t exactly taste like fried chicken but it was really crispy. I loved the idea of using the onions, we had just bought a huge bag from Costco to use in our salads!
