Oven Fried Chicken

1 1/4 cups finely crushed saltine crackers or rich round crackers (about 35)

1 beaten egg

3 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless chicken

2 tablespoons butter, melted


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a baking pan by covering with aluminum foil, then spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

Put the crackers in the bowl of a food processor. Process until all crackers are finely crushed. In a small bowl, combine the egg and milk. 

In another bowl, combine crushed crackers, paprika, and black pepper.

Each piece of chicken should be dipped into the egg/milk mixture, then into the crushed cracker mixture, then placed on the prepared pan.

Drizzle melted butter over the chicken pieces.

Bake, uncovered, in preheated 375 degree F oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Do not turn chicken pieces while

baking.
