Recipe Archives: Oven Crusted Chicken

Hey Diamonds! It has been a long time since I posted a recipe archive. I’ve been working on different recipes. I grew up eating fried chicken……. A LOT! After my lifestyle change I was dedicated to re-creating my aunt’s fried chicken. It just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t. Her chicken is a big part of my background. I haven’t perfected it yet, but here’s a little something to start.

 

You’ll Need:

  • 1 package of chicken breasts or legs
  • 1 loaf of wheat bread
  • Powdered Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • A baking pan

 

Directions:

1.) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

2.) Thaw the chicken and before it’s completely thawed toast the loaf of bread on both sides in the oven.

3.) In a mixing bowl crush the toasted bread  into fine-textured crumbs

4.) After the bread has been mostly crushed add a fair amount of parmesan cheese for a smoky cheesy taste

5.) Add a few dashes of garlic powder to the bread mixture

6.) In a separate mixing bowl whisk the two eggs and a sprinkle of salt (and pepper if desired)

7.) Dip the chicken into the egg mixture and the into the bread mixture and place it in a baking pan

8.) Repeat the dipping process until all of the chicken is coated

9.) Bake the crusted chicken until it is cooked at the center (Tip: stick a fork in the thickest part to see if clear/tanish juice comes out. if blood comes out then the chicken isn’t done.)

10.) After it’s done dig in
