We eat a lot of chicken in this house so when my friend Beverly gave me this recipe she's been making for 40 years I was anxious to try it.  After making it, I can see why she's held on to it and been making it for as long as she has! I loved the mild Parmesan flavor and how very tender the chicken was!  I used chicken legs and thighs, we prefer the dark meat in chicken.  I buy leg quarters when they're on sale and cut them into legs and thighs and freeze them or use right away.  The ingredient list is very simple, basic ingredients like salt, pepper,flour,paprika and Parmesan cheese. You could certainly tweak it and add a little garlic powder, maybe some fresh herbs just don't over power that great Parmesan flavor.  I always make a recipe as is first, then tweak if I feel like it needs it the next time I make it.  You might be wondering ...why the paprika?  Don't leave it out, it helps to get the crust a nice golden color.  Thank you Beverly for this fantastic recipe, this is an absolute KEEPER!!  Enjoy!

Parmesan Crusted Chicken
Beverly's Recipe

 Chicken pieces of your choice with skin.  OR boneless, skinless chicken breasts ( I used 2 drums and 2 thighs and it covered the chicken nicely)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1 egg
1 Tablespoon milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter to drizzle over chicken before baking
In a medium size bowl mix cheese, flour, salt, pepper and paprika together. Spread the cheese mixture on a large plate so it's easier to roll the chicken in to coat.

Slightly beat egg with milk
Dip chicken in egg mixture and then coat with cheese mixture.
Place in a single layer in a pan and pour melted butter over top
Bake at 350 for about 1 hour.
