Oven Baked Fried Chicken

Sadly, both LBA and SoBA may be growing out of the "chicken nugget" easy meal solution of their lives.  But that is not to say that this recipe may work for them.  From Savory Nothings via BuzzFeed (a lot of these recipes featured thighs or drumsticks, but we are more of a white meat kind of family).

Crispy Oven Fried Chicken
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 6

  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 pounds skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup butter

  1. Preheat the oven to 410°F. Place a dark-colored roasting pan (a baking tray works as well) in the oven to heat up.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and the milk.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, breadcrumbs, baking powder and seasoning together.
  4. Dip the chicken pieces in the flour, coating evenly and shaking off any extra flour.
  5. Next, coat the chicken pieces in the egg mixtures. Then, dip them into the flour again, this time coating very well.
  6. Take the baking tray out of the oven and melt the butter on it. Place the coated chicken pieces on the tray.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, carefully flip and bake for another 5-10 minutes (depending on how thick your chicken pieces are). Finish by broiling the chicken until it turns golden brown and crispy.
