Golden Oven-Fried Chicken

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or minced
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme or poultry seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2-1/2 to 3 pounds frying chicken

Preheat oven to 400° (F). In a 13×9-inch pan, melt butter with garlic. In bowl or shallow pan, combine bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, salt, thyme and pepper; mix well. Dip chicken pieces in garlic butter and then in crumb mixture. Place skin-side-up in baking pan containing garlic butter. Bake, uncovered, about one hour or until tender, basting occasionally with pan drippings.
