If I don't grill catfish or chicken, this is the way most normally fix it -
OVEN FRIED CATFISH OR CHICKEN
1/2 cup parmesan cheese -- grated
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornflakes -- crushed
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 Catfish fillets -- cut in half crosswise
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Have two shallow bowls at hand. In one mix one egg with 1 T. water and in the other mix together the parmesan cheese, flour, cornflake crumbs, paprika, salt and pepper.
Dip catfish pieces in an egg wash; coat with cheese mixture.
Place each filet on baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Spray the top of fish also.
Bake for 15 minutes, turn each piece over and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes more. Try not to cook the fish past 140° F. Serves 4
For chicken, have at hand the two bowls with egg wash and parmesan mixture. Dip 4 1/2-breasts in the egg wash and then the dry coating.
Proceed with recipe and bake 20 minutes and turn pieces over and continue cooking for 15-20 minutes until no longer pink and temperature is 160° F. And for a wonderfully moist and tender chicken breast, brine the chicken pieces before using.
