Oven Fried Parmesan Drumsticks

Oven Fried Parmesan Drumsticks
I love "frying" chicken in the oven. When I saw this recipe from Diabetic Living via Pinterest, I knew it would be a hit in our house. I wish frying chicken didn't cause the house to smell like a fryer for days on end.  Miss F and C were both huge fans of the chicken, as was I.  C wanted mashed potatoes with skins on, but since I knew I was going to use the leftovers to make gnocchi, so I got to make them creamy, just like my mom makes.  Who wants lumpy mashed potatoes with skins?
Oven Fried Parmesan Drumsticks

1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons milk
1/3 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
8 chicken drumsticks, skinned
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a baking pan. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. In a second shallow bowl, stir together the parmesan, bread crumbs, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper. Dip the drumsticks in the egg mixture, coating completely, then dip each in the bread crumb mixture, coating completely. Place on the baking pan and drizzle with the melted butter. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, serve.

What a lovely meal. I keep the skins on the mashed potatoes too. BUT when they are the old fashion way, they are luscious and do remind me of my childhood.
Great and easy way to prepare the chicken too.
