Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place flour in a shallow dish. In a second shallow dish, beat eggs with milk, just until mixed. In a plastic bag, mix together bread crumbs and seasonings.

Dredge chicken in flour, 1 or 2 pieces at a time, coating evenly. Dip floured chicken pieces into egg mixture, then place in bread crumb mixture; close bag and shake to coat well.

Place butter in a large baking dish and melt in the oven. Arrange chicken in a single layer over melted butter, turning to coat both sides.

Bake 25 minutes; turn chicken and bake an additional 25 minutes or until golden brown and no pink remains.
