I love fried chicken, but I don't like the deep fryer, so I bake it instead. This recipe is as tasty and juicy as fried chicken, but it's baked, so you don't have all that hot oil to deal with. You can cut up chicken breasts and make chicken nuggets for picky kids, or use chicken on the bone for more of a picnic feel. Either way, it's delicious.

Chicken (tenders, drumsticks, wings, boneless skinless chicken breasts, whatever you've got.)
1/3 c French's fried onions, smashed and broken up
1/3 c breadcrumbs
1/4 c parmesan cheese
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 t garlic salt
1/2 t season salt
2 T butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In one bowl, mix the fried onions crumbs, breadcrumbs, and parmesan cheese. In another bowl, mix the eggs, garlic salt and season salt.

Dip the chicken in the egg mixture to get it nice and sticky, and then in the breadcrumb mixture to coat it. If you're not on a diet, dip it in the egg mixture, and then the breadcrumb mixture again. Twice as delicious. 

Put the chicken on a baking pan and drizzle melted butter over it. Bake it in the oven for about an hour, or until it registers 165 degrees on a working meat thermometer.

I like to serve this chicken with sweet potato fries and coleslaw.
