Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken Recipe

I really love the taste and flavor of fried food, but I hate all the grease and fat that comes with it. I love finding recipes that can be “fried” in the oven. This chicken has yummy flavor and a crunchy cheese crust- and it is easy to throw together in no time!

  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3 tablespoons  milk
  •  1/2 cup  grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup  fine dry bread crumbs (I used Italian Style, just for a little more flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 to 2-1/2 pounds meaty chicken pieces (breasts, thighs, and drumsticks)
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted


  1. Combine egg and milk in a small bowl. Combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, oregano, paprika, and pepper in a shallow dish.
  2. Skin chicken if desired. Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture; coat with crumb mixture. Arrange chicken pieces in a greased 15x10x2-inch baking pan so pieces don't touch. Drizzle chicken pieces with the melted margarine or butter.
  3. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Do not turn chicken pieces during baking. Immediately transfer chicken to a covered container; serve within 1 hour. Or cover and chill chicken; transport in an insulated container with ice packs.
