Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 5 pounds meaty chicken pieces, skinned (breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks)
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • Snipped fresh oregano (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Grease two large shallow baking pans; set aside. In a small bowl, combine egg product and milk. In a shallow dish, combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, oregano, paprika, and pepper.
  • Dip chicken pieces into egg product mixture; coat with crumb mixture. Arrange chicken pieces in prepared baking pans, making sure pieces don't touch. Drizzle chicken pieces with melted butter.
  • Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink (170° F for breasts; 180° F for thighs and drumsticks). 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.) If desired, sprinkle with fresh oregano
