Italian "Fried" Chicken

I saw this receipe on a cooking show that used wings and legs, no flour and only 1/4 c of parmesan cheese. I don't like bone-in chicken and love the flavor of cheese so I customized it to my own taste and tried it out the first time on my mother-in-law who LOVED it!! Talk about trial by fire! lol
