Parmesan Crusted Chicken Drumsticks Parmigiana
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. Lightly whisk the eggs in a shallow dish with ¼ cup water
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine the panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese and season well with salt and pepper
  4. Working with one drumstick at a time, dip in the egg, then breadcrumb mixture, pressing the crumbs on gently with your fingertips to coat. Set aside
  5. Heat half of the oil in a large frying pan, over medium-high heat. Cook half of the drumsticks for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and crisp. Transfer to the lined tray and repeat with the remaining oil and chicken
  6. Meanwhile, spread the tomato passata over the base of a 1.5 litre (6 cup capacity) ovenproof dish. Arrange the drumsticks over the tomatoes and top with Perfect Melt cheese
  7. Return to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and chicken is cooked and golden. Serve warm with a fresh salad

Parmesan Crusted Chicken - 5 Stsrs

Easy to make & it turned out magnificently. Absolutely will be making this dish again. I actually double dipped my drums, dipped in egg, rolled in a bit of flour, re-dipped in egg & then covered with parmesan & panko mix. I found the parmesan/pablo mix stuck better to the drums. Great dish - highly recommended.
