10 to 12 pieces of bone-in skin on chicken

2 eggs, lightly beaten

¼ cup milk

1 cup unseasoned fine dry bread crumbs

¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1 ½ tablespoons dried oregano

kosher salt

freshly ground pepper


Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Prepare two baking sheets by lightly greasing or spraying with cooking spray.


Stir together the milk and egg in a shallow bowl or pie plate and set aside.  In another shallow bowl or pie plate combine the bread crumbs, cheese, oregano and ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper.  

Lightly salt and pepper the chicken pieces, and dip the chicken pieces into the egg mixture, and then into the bread crumb mixture.  Pat the crumbs so they cling to all sides of the chicken.  

Place the chicken pieces on the prepared baking sheets and baking until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is lightly browned, about 35 to 40 minutes.
