Crispy Parmesan Chicken

Every morning I have a set routine and visit my favorite sites to see what's new and always on the look out for recipes that Gabe and I would enjoy.

One of the sites I frequent is Taste Of Home. I've been a member since 2001. When I joined the board was full of recipes which made my printer work overtime.

This recipe is one I printed out and noted that a man that posted the recipe on the board was Foodguy. Foodguy was one of the few men who posted.

He used chicken breast. I had chicken thighs that I bought on sale at Walbaum's  for 99 cents a pound. I removed the skin and deboned them. Saved the bones to make chicken stock.

Unfortunately I can't source the recipe. It came from my bin of printed recipes. I don't know if it was Foodguy's original recipe or where he found it. He passed away over a year ago and I know the recipes he posted will be enjoyed for many years.

1/2 cup Butter or margarine, melted
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. ground mustard
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. pepper
6 boneless skinless Chicken halves( I used 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs which I boned and saved bones to use to make chicken stock later)

1 cup plain dry bread crumbs( used seasoned panko)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese( Kraft parmesan cheese)
1 can (6 oz.) original French fried onions, crushed
I crushed the can of fried onion in the Cuisinart, added the Parmesan and then the panko and when the consistency I wanted emptied the crumbs onto a plate.

Melted the butter in a small saucepan, added the garlic powder, ground mustard, pepper and  Worcestershire.

Placed the pan with the melted butter mixture next to the plate with the bread crumb mixture.

Sprayed my baking dish with pam and dipped one chicken thigh in the butter and made sure it was coated then covered the thigh with the crumbs and placed in dish sprayed with Pam.

Continue until all the chicken is coated.

Place in preheated 350 degree oven for 50- 60 minutes


  1. That chicken came out fantastic, looks so good. We love crispy baked chicken.

    I have to tell you-you can debone chicken thighs better than the people at the grocery store I've bought them at. They look like they got run over by a tank--what a mess. I thought those in the photo were chicken're a pro!

    I remember Foodguy-he did share a lot of wonderful recipes....thanks for sharing this one-I know he'd be happy that you and Gabe enjoyed it. :)


  2. I think I made this recipe. Taste of Home has some great ones. I still love a recipe I cut out from the magazine. It is mini meat loaves. I gave so many people the recipe, and they loved it also. So many things have changed since I got a Taste of Home and Cooking Light....the computer sure saves space.
