SUPER AWESOME Oven Fried Chicken

I LOVE this oven fried chicken. It's a hit every time I make it. I always make at least double what I think everyone will eat- apparently, their stomachs enlarge at the very smell! It's also very good the next day, cut up and placed on a salad as well.
1 to 1.5 lbs chicken
1 c cracker crumbs & rice chex crumbs, mixed (bread crumbs are ok too)
1 c flour
1 egg
1/2 c half & half or milk
1/4 c finely grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c butter, melted
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp Crazy Jane's seasoning salt
1/8 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 350* for dark, non-stick pans and 375* for light or glass. Grease a cookie sheet.
Clean chicken.
Place flour on a small plate.
In small bowl, beat egg and half & half.
In a separate bowl, mix all spices, Parmesan cheese and crumb mixture.
Dredge chicken in flour, followed by half & half mixture, then crumb mix. Place on Greased cookie sheet. Continue until all pieces are covered. Drizzle melted butter evenly over all pieces. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until no longer pink. (I used 1 lb of chicken tenders, baking at 350* for 30 minutes)
