    I made this tonight and it was really delicious. Since I try to cook low-fat, I took the skin off the chicken and dipped it an egg and milk mixture instead of the butter. Once I put it on the cookie sheet, I gave it a quick spray with cooking spray. It came out nice and crispy and brown with a great flavour. I'll definitely cook this again!

    You did it again, Inez! DH was licking his fingers! I used chicken drumsticks for this, and drizzled the remaining butter over them in the pan. Served it with my Onion and Garlic Linguini and steamed broccoli. It was delish! Thanks for another keeper! :o)

    Thank you Inez, for sharing this delightful recipe. The chicken came out moist with a lovely crust, both in taste and visual appeal. I served it with mashed potatoes, gravy and a salad. This is a recipe I will happily make again. Di

    This was excellent. I used four thighs and six drumsticks, skinless. Was very moist and flavorful. I only used 1/2 tsp. salt because of the parmesan cheese. Baked just for 50 min. Thank you for sharing a great recipe.

    Excellent chicken, it was a hit for the whole family. Including our 2 1/2 year old and 11 month old. I didn't have any minced garlic, so I used 3 garlic cloves and pressed them in the garlic press. We also used chicken breast instead of a fryer. We will be making this one again. Thanks for the recipe!!!

    this was a delicious recipe! i also took the skin off thighs, i didn't have parmesan cheese and I didn't use parsley, and also instead of minced garlic used powder and also a little onion powder. after placing on the baking sheet i did as someone said and drizzled the rest of the butter over the chicken, then sprinkled lightly with curry powder. Hubby couldn't stop talking about how good they were. He's a former skin-lovin man, and I had to tell him there was no skin on them, he couldn't tell by looking! thanks for the yummy recipe!!!

    Very good baked Italian Chicken indeed. I used skinless chicken thigh, a dash of Worcestershire Sauce instead of salt and marinated overnight with all the listed spices. So flavorful, so heavenly delicious and so easy. Thank you for sharing your recipe.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
