"I shall content myself with merely declaring my firm conviction that, for the seeker who would live in fear of God and who would see Him face to face, restraint in diet both as to quantity and quality is as essential as restraint in thought and speech." -Mahatma Gandhi

Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken

1 beaten egg
3 Tablespoons milk
1 cup finely crushed saltine crackers or rich round crackers
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 1/2 to 3 pounds meaty chicken pieces (breast halves, thigh, drumsticks, etc.) (I usually use breasts)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

1. In a small bowl combine egg and milk. In a shallow dish combine crushed crackers, paprika, pepper, Parmesan cheese, and oregano. Set aside. Skin chicken. Dip chicken pieces, 1 at a time, into egg mixture; coat with crumb mixture

2. In a greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan, arrange the chicken bone side down, so the pieces aren't touching. Drizzle chicken with the melted butter.

3. Bake, uncovered, in a 375 degree oven for 45-55 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Do not turn chicken pieces while baking.
