Crispy oven fried Parmesan chicken can give you the taste and texture of a deep fried meal without the fat and calories. So feed this dish often to your family. For extra juicy and tender chicken, consider marinating the chicken over night in buttermilk. It will absolutely guarantee a lovely, tender meat. As well, don’t be afraid to use thighs or other parts of the bird. We have become so committed to the breast, which is really not nearly as flavorful as other parts, and only a bit leaner in terms of fats. Chicken is an already lean meat, so don’t be too nervous about eating the dark meat. It may be a taste you have to learn, but you will be glad you did.

Chicken itself is a great source of protein, low in fat, but that has been criticized for its high level of cholesterol. However, there is no indication that eating foods with cholesterol in them raises levels in your own body. Check out the information yourself so you know what you are eating. Chicken can also be purchased as free range, which research suggests is a better meat to eat.

This recipe gets paired with a wonderful cheese, Parmesan. Use the real thing, from the dairy section, not the dried up stuff you buy that contains a whole lot besides cheese. Parmesan cheese originates in the county of Parma in Italy, created by monks in that region. Naming cheese (and lots of other things) after their region of origin is a longstanding tradition that dates at least as far back as the Romans, and is still used today. The word, champagne, for example, has been trade marked and can only be used with the bubbly made from the region for that reason—a designation of origin, as it is called. Everything else must be called sparkling or something else. Crazy but true.
