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



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

Suggested pairs: Kale Salad, Grilled Asparagus, Rachel’s Red Beans (previous recipe archives) with brown rice
