Todays' Dinner - Oven Fried Chicken & Tagliatelline Pasta with Cheese and Herbs


My son has been asking for chicken chop for days now.  I remembered making this oven fried chicken just before summer holidays.  But never got to post it. The other time I made the chicken with black pepper sauce and mash potato.

Both kids were really happy with that version.  I thought I will make the same chicken however paired it up with a pasta that was given to by my friend when she went visiting her daughter in Italy.  And also I had a packet of McCormick's Herbs and Cheese that soon will be expiring.

It is quite simple to do this.  You need three different bowl.  Fillet dip into flour, next into egg mixture and then to breadcrumbs and place in a lined baking tray and bake.  And you get a beautiful baked chicken - it reminds me of like production line....
