Tyson Chicken Patties. 

QUICK & EASY CHICKEN PARMESAN

4-6 frozen breaded chicken patties
1 (28 oz.) jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 box thin spaghetti

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cook the spaghetti noodles according to package directions.  In a small saucepan, heat the sauce until it comes to a light boil; reduce heat and keep warm until ready to use.

While the noodles are cooking, place chicken patties in a casserole dish and bake for 10 minutes.  Flip patties over once and continue baking for another 8 minutes.  Remove from oven and pour hot sauce over patties and top with mozzarella cheese.  Return chicken to the oven and continue baking a few more minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Serve over warm pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

KID'S CRUNCHY BAKED CHICKEN

3-4 lbs. chicken thighs & legs
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 (2.8 oz.) can french-fried onions
3/4  cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the french-fried onions in a large resealable bag and crush with a rolling pin.  Add parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder, and salt; shake well to combine.

Combine egg and milk in a shallow bowl and whisk lightly.  

Dip each chicken piece in egg then place in the bag and shake until well coated with onion mixture.

Place chicken in a greased 13 X 9" baking pan and drizzle with butter.

Bake uncovered for one hour.



DELICIOUS BAKED CHICKEN & CHEDDAR


1-1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts


2/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 egg
1 Tbsp. milk
2 tsp. minced garlic
2/3 cup sour cream

1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 cup Panko crispy bread crumbs, Italian Style



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.

If chicken breasts are thick, cut in half on the diagonal to make two pieces of thinner breasts.

Combine flour, salt and pepper and pour on a pie plate or a piece of waxed paper. In shallow bowl, beat together egg, milk, sour cream, and garlic, and a dash of salt. Combine the cheese and bread crumbs and lay on another piece of waxed paper or pie plate.

Rinse chicken with cold water and lightly coat chicken with flour. Next, dip floured chicken into egg mixture and then coat each side well with the cheese and breadcrumb mixture by pressing each chicken side into the breadcrumbs and cheese. (Make sure chicken is well coated.) Lay chicken pieces on a cookie sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes. Test your thickest breast for doneness after 30 minutes to ensure no pink in the center. If the chicken breasts are thicker they will require a longer cooking time.
