This oven-fried chicken is the perfect dish to prepare in advance and take on a picnic because it tastes just as good cold as it does warm. It's been a family favorite for years. -Sharon Crider, Junction City, Kansas


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt, paprika and pepper. In another shallow bowl, beat the eggs and milk. In a third bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Coat chicken pieces with flour mixture, dip in egg mixture, then roll in crumb mixture.
