Oven Fried Chicken

Oven-fried Chicken

12 tablespoons unsalted butter

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 cups freshly made breadcrumbs

2/3 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

2 teaspoons kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper to taste

One 3 1/2-pound chicken, cut into 10 pieces (or all thighs, wings or breasts, if desired)

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter and garlic in a small saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat until the butter has melted. Pour into a large bowl. Cool to room temperature.

Mix the breadcrumbs, cheese, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Dip each chicken piece, one at a time, into the melted garlic butter. Transfer to the bread crumb mixture. Turn until coated on all sides.

Arrange the chicken in one flat layer on a large baking sheet. Drizzle on any of the remaining melted butter. Bake until lightly browned and just cooked through, 50 to 60 minutes.

Serves 4 to 6.
