Oven Fried Chicken is as delicious and crispy as pan-fried, and it’s a whole lot easier and healthier, too! While the chicken bakes, you can be preparing the rest of the meal. Perfect for a delicious dinner or picnic!
My mother doesn’t like to cook but she always managed to put a good, healthy dinner on the table for our family of six. One of her Sunday specialties was Oven Fried Chicken. Even before all the research about low-fat and frying, she loved cooking the chicken in the oven because it was much cleaner and quicker (and cooler) than frying on top of the stove.
I have adapted this recipe from hers. The change I made is adding the egg wash and bread crumbs because I wanted a crispier chicken. Everything else is all my mom’s. If you want to leave out the egg wash and bread crumbs, the chicken will still be delicious, a little less crispy and a bit healthier!
This is a Gr8 recipe to make for a big family dinner because while the chicken is cooking for an hour, you can make all the other dishes and put a beautiful family dinner on the table.
Or make this ahead and pack a picnic! This is classic picnic food. And don’t forget the Chocolate Chip Cookies!
