Crusty Cold Chicken Ingredients
Twelve chicken drumstick
Twelve chicken thighs
One cup butter or margarine
One one-half cups fine dry bread crumbs
One-half teaspoon dried leaf thyme
One-half dried leaf marjoram
One teaspoon rosemary
Two teaspoon paprika
Two teaspoon salt
One half teaspoon pepper
Three tablespoon dipping sauces (recipes follow) cold water
At first you need to thoroughly wash the chicken pieces and dry them well on paper toweling. Then you have to heat the oven to three hundred seventy five degrees Fahrenheit (or 190 degrees Celsius). After that, you put the one half cup (or 125ml) butter or margarine in each of the two large shallow baking pans that will hold the chicken pieces in a single layer. And then, you put the pans in the oven to melt the butter.
Following that, you have to combine the bread crumbs, the thyme, the marjoram, the rosemary, the paprika, the salt and the pepper in a large flat dish. Beat eggs and water together with a fork in another flat dish.
Next to that, you have to roll each chicken piece in the egg mixture then in the crumbs to coat it well and the put the pieces in the prepared pans, turning them over once in the butter. After that, try to place the chicken pieces so that they are not quite touching with each other.
And finally, you have to bake them for an hour or until they become tender and browned by turning the chicken pieces after the first 30 minutes. (If your oven won’t hold both pans at once, it won’t hurt to let one pan stand while the other is baking.) Last, you cool and chill it. Serve this with any or all of the following dips.
