Oven Fried Chicken
4 large chicken pieces
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. chopped mixed fresh herbs such as parsley,basil, and thyme
1 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
lemon wedges, for serving
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Rinse the chicken in cold water. Pat dry.
In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt and pepper and stir with a whisk to mix.
In a second shallow dish, beat the egg with water and stir in the herbs.
In a third shallow dish combine the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.
Dip the chicken first in the flour mixture, coating the pieces on all sides.
Dip the pieces in the egg mixture, then the breadcrumb mixture being sure to thoroughly coat the chicken.
Place the chicken pieces in a shallow pan, large enough to hold them in one layer. Bake until completely cooked and golden brown, approximately 30 minutes. To check that they are cooked, prick with a fork; the juices that run out should be clear, not pink.
Serve hot with lemon wedges.
