Parmesan Chicken & Crispy Potato Wedges
2 medium baking potatoes
1 medium sweet potato
Cut each potato lengthwise into 8 wedges (24 wedges total). On an ungreased 15x10x1 baking pan, arrange wedges in a single layer, skin side down. Mix the first two tablespoons oil, the 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic salt, 1/2 teaspoon thyme and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Brush Parmesan mixture onto wedges and set aside.
Skin chicken pieces if desired. Rinse chicken, pat dry with paper towels. In a shallow bowl combine egg and 2 tablespoons water. In another shallow bowl combine 1/2 cup Parmesan, flour, 3/4 teaspoon thyme and dash pepper.
Dip chicken in egg mixture; coat with cheese mixture. Arrange skin side up, in an ungreased 13x9x2 baking pan. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons cooking oil.
Bake chicken pieces and potato wedges, uncovered, in a 375° oven for 45-55 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and potatoes are tender.
Meanwhile, cook broccoli, covered, in a small amount of boiling, salted water, until crisp-tender; drain. Serve with chicken and potatoes. Makes 6 servings.
