Oven Fried Chicken

Jean Anderson's Oven-Fried chicken
taken from "Sara Moulton Cooks at Home", pgs. 72, 73

12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups fresh bread crumbs
2/3 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
2 teaspoons kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
One 3-1/2 lb. chicken, cut into 10 pieces (or all thighs, wings, or breasts if desired) {*or boneless chicken breasts or tenders}

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the butter and garlic in a small saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat until the butter has melted. Pour into a large bowl and cool to room temperature.

Mix the bread crumbs, cheese, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Dip each chicken piece, one at a time, into the melted garlic butter. Transfer to the bread crumb mixture and turn until coated on all sides.

Arrange the chicken in one flat layer on a large baking sheet. Drizzle on any of the remaining melted butter. Bake until lightly browned and just cooked through, 50-60 minutes.
