For the pan
Prep: Preheat oven to 430°F. Add a dark-colored pan or baking sheet to the oven as it heats up - the pan you use to bake the chicken on needs to be hot to melt the butter on!
Make breading: Mix all ingredients for the breading in a shallow dish.
Prepare eggs: Add eggs to a SEPARATE shallow dish and beat well.
Bread fish: Dip chicken into breading to lightly coat. THEN coat chicken with egg. FINALLY, coat chicken with breading again, this time you can really pack on as much as will stick! (Just place breaded chicken pieces on a plate until you've breaded them all.)
Melt butter: VERY CAREFULLY remove the pan from the oven. Add 3 tablespoons of the butter to the pan to melt. Spread all over the pan and put the chicken pieces on.
Bake: Bake the chicken for 10 minutes. Flip, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and finish baking for 5-10 minutes or until the coating is crispy and the chicken is cooked through.
Finish: Let the chicken pieces rest on the pan for 5 minutes after baking, then serve immediately.
