Finally found a couple of chicken breast fillets in the freezer so this is on the menu for tonight!

Crunchy Oven Baked Chicken

Marinade your chicken fillets in some lemon juice, pepper, garlic, oil, and parsley. Sit for a couple of hours, covered, in fridge.

Make fresh breadcrumbs. Add some pepper, paprika or dried mixed herbs.

Take the chicken from the marinade & roll in the seasoned crumbs, pressing on firmly to coat. Refrigerate 1/2 hour at least to set crumbs. Discard marinade.

Put onto an oven tray lined with baking paper or foil. Spray with oil. Bake at 180C for about 30 minutes, turn halfway during cooking. (Drumsticks take a bit longer, about 45 mins).

Note: Can be eaten hot or cold.

Serve with an Avocado Salad

I love crunchy chicken and do make it with veggie ritz crackers. I think I'll try this one next time I do chicken. I like to make up a bunch so I can have it on salads during the week!
