Oven-Fried Chicken

Ingredients
1
egg, beaten
3
tablespoons milk
1 1/4
cups crushed cornflakes or finely crushed rich round crackers (about 35)
1
teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/2
teaspoon paprika
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon black pepper
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 1/2
pounds meaty chicken pieces (breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine egg and milk. For coating, in a shallow dish combine crushed cornflakes, thyme, paprika, salt, pepper; stir in melted butter. Set aside. Skin chicken. Dip chicken pieces, 1 at a time, into egg mixture; coat with crumb mixture.
  2. In a greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan, arrange chicken, bone side down, so the pieces aren't touching. Sprinkle chicken pieces with any remaining crumb mixture so they are generously coated.
  3. Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F for breasts; 180 degrees F for thighs and drumsticks). Do not turn chicken pieces while baking. Makes 6 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

*

To make your own tenders, simply cut 1-1/2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast halves lengthwise into 1-inch strips.

Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken:

Prepare as above, except omit thyme and salt and reduce crushed cornflakes to 1/2 cup. For coating, combine cornflakes; 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese; 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed; the paprika; and pepper. Stir in melted butter. Continue as above.

Oven-Fried Chicken Breast Tenders:

Prepare as above, except substitute 1-1/2 pounds chicken tenders* for meaty chicken pieces, increase crushed cornflakes to 1-3/4 cups, and place tenders in a single layer on 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered in a 400 degrees F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Do not turn tenders while baking.
