CRISPY ITALIAN CHICKEN

I've had this recipe so long I don't even remember where I got it.

2 cups Corn Chex cereal
2 cups Rice Chex cereal
2 tsp Italian seasoning blend
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 cup margarine, melted
3 lb skinless chicken pieces
Paprika

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a plastic bag, crush cereals together until the 4 cups are only 1 1/2 cups of crumbs. In a large shallow dish, combine the crushed cereal, Italian seasoning, parsley, and garlic salt. Place the margarine in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan; roll the chicken in the margarine. Remove chicken and dredge in the cereal crumb mixture. Return the coated chicken to the baking pan. Sprinkle paprika over the chicken. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until lightly browned.
