Kelly's Oven Crispy Chicken

1 pound Chicken pieces ( breasts, thighs, legs, or even strips or nuggets if you like)

1 cup buttermilk or milk

1 cup fresh bread crumbs

½ cup shredded parmesan cheese

1 tsp garlic salt

½ tsp paprika

(optional) 1Tbsp ground flax seed, 1Tbsp Wheat germ, 1 Tbsp Whole wheat flour ( I do all of these for extra nutrition)

1Tbsp melted butter.

Soak Chicken in buttermilk or milk for 30min, mix dry ingredients in large Ziploc, put chicken in one piece at a time to coat well. Place on cookie sheet and drizzle with butter. Bake at 400F for 15-35 min depending on size of chicken pieces. Flip once during cooking.

(Kelly’s tip_ take the butts of my bread and pulse them for a few seconds in my food processor or small chopper to make my breadcrumbs- it saves us from wasting the ends and I get to use my own yummy bread. My favorite is with Dave’s Killer Bread)
