How to Make Delicious Coated Baked Chicken
- Remove skin from chicken, rinse, and pat dry. Set aside.
- In a bowl, beat eggs and milk.
- In a separate bowl, combine potato flakes, garlic powder, seasoned salt, paprika and poultry seasoning. (You can add a little pepper, too, if you'd like to!)
- Pour Parmesan cheese into the mixture, then mix together well with a fork.
- Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray well with cooking spray. (using foil makes for much less sticking and easier clean-up!)
- Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture, then roll each piece in the potato flake mixture to coat evenly on all sides. (Try not to touch coated chicken too much with your fingers if they're wet. I use two forks to roll the chicken and lift it onto the baking sheet, or you could use tongs. The potato flakes melt a little bit if your fingers are wet.)
- Put butter into a measuring cup (only because it makes for easier drizzling), and melt for a few seconds in your microwave.
- When done, remove from microwave and carefully drizzle a little bit over top of each coated piece of chicken. You don't need to saturate chicken with the butter or it will get too greasy. A little bit goes a long way.
- Bake chicken, uncovered, on middle rack of oven at 400 degrees for 35 minutes, turning chicken once after about 15 minutes.
- After 35 minutes, turn chicken once again, increase oven temperature to 425 degrees and bake 10-15 minutes longer, or until chicken is tender and done.
