Paprika Parmesan Chicken

I was looking for something new to make because we were having some family over for dinner, and after considering all kinds of chicken recipes I finally decided on Baked Paprika Parmesan Chicken. Paprika adds so much flavor to the homemade BBQ sauce I make for Crockpot Pulled Chicken, so I had a good feeling this recipe would turn out well.

First I mixed grated Parmesan cheese, flour, paprika, salt and pepper in a wide bowl.

I mixed egg and milk separately, then dipped the chicken breasts first into the egg then into the Parmesan mixture, coating all sides. I laid the coated chicken breasts out in large casserole dish, covered them with foil and placed them in the oven. I skipped the step of pouring melted butter over the chicken.

I baked them for 1 hour 15 minutes total, removing the foil for the last 25 minutes. I also drained some liquid from the bottom of the baking pan at that time.

Oh yes, that was some moist and tasty chicken. It came out with a good coating that had baked on to nicely. I loved the paprika and Parmesan combination and everybody said it was great! My husband it tasted like KFC's chicken and you can't beat a complement like that.
