Oven Fried Chicken
1 egg, beaten
3 Tb milk
1 C finely crushed crackers or bread crumbs
1 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/2 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp pepper
2 to 2 1/2 pounds breasts, thighs, and drumsticks
2 Tb butter, melted
Oven to 375.
Combine egg and milk in a small bowl.
Combine coating mixture in a shallow dish.
Rinse chicken and pat dry. Dip into egg mixture, then coat with crumb mixture.
In a greased 15x10x1 or 13x9x2 pan, arrange chicken so pieces don't touch. Drizzle with melted butter.

(For Parmesan chicken, remove bread crumbs and thyme and substitute 1/2 C grated Parmesean, 1/4 C fine bread crumbs, and 1 tsp dry oregano.)
