Crispy Parmesan Chicken

Think you can't eat well on a budget,
think again.

Chicken leg quarters make it easy,
and if you have a family of
leg lovers
like I do,
everyone is happy:)

The crispy coating make you feel like you are eating
fried chicken
{one of my childhood faves}
without the guilt, but still with all of that great flavor
and crunch.

Crispy Parmesan Chicken:
First Street Chicken Leg Quarters
2 cups of plain yogurt
juice of 1 lemon
2 garlic cloves {minced}
chopped parsley {to taste}
1 1/2 cups of Panko breadcrumbs
1/4 grated Parmesan cheese
salt/pepper to taste

Rinse and pat dry the chicken quarters

Combine the yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, and parsley
mix together

In a separate bowl combine the Panko, the Parmesan, and salt and pepper

One piece at a time, coat the chicken in the yogurt,

and then dredge in the crumbs

Place each piece in a buttered baking dish
Cover lightly with foil
Bake @350 for 1 hour
remove the foil and continue baking until the tops get nice and golden
{about another 20 minutes}

I served this with roasted potato wedges and a green salad.

Everything was purchased at Smart and Final.  The First Street Chicken Leg Quarters will be on sale for $.89/pound beginning February 20th.
