Crispy Oven Baked Chicken

Yet another way to cook the most versatile food – chicken. This recipe is very simple to prepare, and very tasty.

1 chicken, cut in pieces (I use any type of chicken pieces I have on hand)
2 egg whites or 1 whole egg
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
1/4 tsp. each garlic and onion powder
1/2 tsp. paprika (optional)
salt and pepper

Wash chicken pieces and pat dry with a paper towel. Combine dry ingredients in a shallow pan.

Spray a 9"x13" baking pan or larger with olive oil spray. Beat egg slightly. Add parsley to egg and a pinch of salt, pepper (and a sprinkle of paprika, garlic and onion powder).

Season the flour with salt and pepper, onion and garlic powder. Roll the chicken in the egg, then in the seasoned flour, turning well to coat. Make sure all the flour is wet.

Spray chicken well all over with the olive oil spray.

Bake, in a preheated 350°F oven, for about 1 hour or until chicken is tender, golden, and cooked through.
