Italian Party Chicken
Recipe By : Romy Rischar - Partyline
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Poultry
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 cups soft bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Romano cheese
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
Black pepper
6 whole chicken breasts or legs or combination
1/2 cup melted margarine

Preheat oven to 325 F. Combine the first 8 ingredients on a large piece of waxed paper.

Dip each chicken piece in butter, coating well. Roll in crumb mixture to get a thick coating. Arrange chicken pieces on a lightly buttered large baking pan (shallow). Drizzle any remaining butter over chicken pieces.

Bake uncovered at 325 F. for about 1 hour or check for doneness near the bone.

Notes : Do you have a party coming up? If so, do your own catering! Start it off with this easy and tasty method of preparing chicken.

Halve breast and legs. The night before, bake chicken only half way through. Cool and wrap, then refrigerate.

Next day, complete baking chicken an additional 25 to 30 minutes. You can prepare several trays of chicken for a party in advance using this method.
