Crisp Baked Chicken


Crisp Baked Chicken

8 slices white bread (I used leftover brioche)
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 teaspoon thyme
Freshly ground pepper
1 cup buttermilk (alternatively, you may use yoghurt)
Coarse salt
1 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp tumeric powder
chicken pieces (I'm using drumsticks), rinsed and patted dry

Preheat the oven to 200C. Oil a baking sheet.
In a food processor, grind the bread into fine crumbs. In a shallow bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, thyme, and pepper, salt, paprika and tumeric.

In a second large bowl, combine the buttermilk, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken, turning to coat (you may leave the chicken in the buttermilk overnight).

Remove one piece of chicken from buttermilk mixture, shaking off excess liquid. Drop into the breadcrumb mixture and turn to coat. Place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken.

Bake for 40 minutes, rotating pans halfway through cooking.

When a relationship ends, a woman will cry and pour her heart out to
her girlfriends, and she will write a poem titled "All Men Are
Then she will get on with her life. A man has a little more trouble
letting go. Six months after the break-up, at 3:00 a.m. on a Saturday
night, he will call and say, "I just wanted to let you know you ruined
my life, and I'll never forgive you, and I hate you, and you're a
floozy. But I want you to know that there's always a chance for us."
This is known as the "I Hate You / I Love You" drunken phone call, and
99% of all men have made at least once. There are community colleges
that offer courses to help men get over this need.

Women mature much faster than men. Most 17-year old females can
function as adults. Most 17-year old males are still trading
baseball cards and giving each other wedgies after gym class. This
is why high school romances rarely work out.

To their credit, men do not decorate their penmanship. They just
chicken-scratch. Women use scented, colored stationery and they
dot their "i's" with circles and hearts. Women use ridiculously
large loops in their "p's" and "g's". It is a royal pain to read a
note from a woman. Even when she's dumping you, she'll put a
smiley face at the end of the note!!!

A man has six items in his bathroom-a toothbrush, shaving cream,
razor, a bar of Dial soap, and a towel from the Holiday Inn.
The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 437.
A man would not be able to identify most of these items.

Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't
looking, men kick cats.

Women do laundry every couple of days. A man will wear every article
of clothing he owns, including his surgical pants that were hip about
eight years ago, before he will do his laundry. When he is finally
out of clothes, he will wear a dirty sweatshirt inside out, rent a
U-Haul and take his mountain of clothes to the laundromat. Men
always expect to meet beautiful women at the laundromat.

Men see the telephone as a communication tool. They use the
telephone to send short messages to other people. A woman can
visit her girlfriend for two weeks, and upon returning home, she
will call the same friend and they will talk for three hours.

Women like Richard Gere because he is sexy in a dangerous way.
Men hate Richard Gere because he reminds them of that slick guy
who works at the health club and dates only married women.

Same as above, but reversed. Same reason.

In the locker room men talk about three things: money, football,
and women. They exaggerate about money, they don't know football
nearly as well as they think they do, and they fabricate stories
about women.
Women talk about one thing in the locker-sex. And not
in abstract terms, either. They are extremely graphic and
technical, and they never lie.

Every actress in the history of movies has had to do a nude scene.
This is because every movie in the history of movies has been
produced by a man. The only actor who has ever appeared nude in
the movies is Richard Gere. This is another reason why men hate him.

When a woman says she'll be ready to go out in five more minutes,
she's using the same meaning of time as when a man says the football
game just has five minutes left. Neither of them is counting time
outs, commercials, or replays.

Women on a girl's night out talk the whole time. Men on a boy's
night out say about twenty words all night, most of which are "Pass
the Doritos or Got any more beer?"

Men use restrooms for purely biological reasons. Women use
restrooms as social lounges. Men in a restrooms will never speak
a word to each other. Women who've never met will leave a restroom
giggling together like old friends. And never in the history of the
world has a man excused himself from a restaurant table by saying,
"Hey, Tom, I was just about to take a leak. Do you want to join me?"

Mamafami... you'd probably be able to do it with your eyes closed!! The best part about it is you can put the whole lot into the oven and do something else while they're baking.

zaza...yeah, you're right this is a healthier and easier option....and guess what, it's really delicious.

mamasya....macam deep fried, kan!

Rinnchan...tu-lah kat sini kalau asyik makan kat restaurant, senget budget!!

LeeLin....Tissue!! tissue!! cepat!!

Yvonne....Thank you, thank you and likewise..

Ida Isk....tak lama nak buat ni....masuk dalam oven kejap and they're done.

Kak Kamariah.... betul tu. I really dislike deep frying 'cos malas nak kemas dapur.

Cek de Sam... cubalah. Memang senang dan sedap.

Mami ... Ayo Mami, fresh thyme kan mudah nak dapat kat sini dari daun kari. Anyhow, memang betul kalau ganti dengan daun kari pun boleh juga and maybe you can also substitute paprika with curry powder. Muna guarantee Mamak mesti tak senang duduk!!
