Potato Flake Chicken
(Recipe from allrecipes.com | photos from me!)
2/3 cup dry potato flakes
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic salt (I used garlic powder)
1 (3 pound) chicken, skin removed, cut into pieces (I used 4 chicken breasts)
1/3 cup butter, melted
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease or line with foil a baking sheet or a 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
- In a medium bowl, combine potato flakes, Parmesan cheese, and garlic salt. (I also added 1tsp rosemary and 1tsp thyme for more flavor.) Stir until well mixed.
- Dip chicken pieces into melted butter or margarine, and roll in potato flake mixture to coat. Place in prepared pan.
- Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until chicken is tender and golden brown.
[NOTES: I dipped each chicken breast in AP flour and egg before coating the chicken with the potato mixture. That trick always seems to keep the “coating” on better for me. I totally forgot the “butter” step but since I coated with flour+egg, I just drizzled the butter on top of the chicken before baking.]

The rosemary, thyme and potato flavors worked well together and the chicken was so juicy and tender. I paired it with brown rice, sauteed green beans and cauliflower. Very yummy!
