Oven fried chicken my way.

I found this recipe in 1992 in the newspaper. Over the years this is the only way I will fix chicken when I want "fried" chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy. It has been a number of years since I have fixed it and so about a week ago I got the recipe out and we had this chicken for dinner. Instead of a whole chicken I just used parts because my husband likes the breast and I like the thighs. Make sure you use a good sour dough French bread for the crumbs. That makes it extra good!

Dip the chicken pieces into the garlic butter and then put into the bread crumbs and coat well.

Put the chicken into a baking dish and into a preheated 350 degree oven.

Now, you don't open the oven door for 1 hour.
The chicken comes out to be wonderfully tender with a nice crunch.

Depending on the size of your chicken you may need to increase the amount of the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
