No more fried chicken for you...

My crispy fried chicken recipe is baked in the oven allowing you to have a healthier option to fried chicken that requires no extra oil to make it crispy. The chicken baked on a nonstick stove top grill which removes cholesterol causing oils to drain off. This also prevents the bottoms from getting soggy.

The seasoning you use is up to you. You can add anything you like as long as you put the dry seasoning in the flour and the wet seasoning in the buttermilk.

It takes about an hour and a half to cook depending on the thickness of the chicken and the rack you have it on in your oven. By the way, it is absolutely the crispiest ever!

I used a ziplock baggie and rolling pin to crush my cornflakes. The larger the flakes the crunchier the chicken.

I already tried the top rack. The middle is the best bet but will take 1-1/2 hours. The top rack will get it done in an hour and very brown. Remember all ovens are not created equal.

This is what I cooked my chicken with. I believe this is Teflon. It is  a nonstick material and the oils from the chicken run into the donut shaped reservoir. Both pieces fit together well. The come with handles and without.

  • garlic powder
  • sea salt

Crispy Baked Chicken Instructions

Mix all dry ingredients together and put in one bowl. Mix hot sauce with butter milk in one bowl. Place crushed cornflakes in on bowl. You will be preparing one piece of chicken at a time. You will have to rinse your hands frequently. Do leave a little room between each piece. Use two pans if you must to avoid over crowding.

  1. Wash 2-3 lbs of chicken parts. Breast, legs, or thighs.
  2. Roll chicken if flour and make sure you coal all areas well.
  3. Dip chicken in buttermilk. This will make a paste like coating to hold the cornflakes
  4. Roll chicken in cornflakes on all edges. This is what makes the magic!
  5. Place onto pan leaving enough room to cook evenly on the sides
  6. Repeat until done.

I like to taste the dry flour with seasoning to let me know when I'm finished. You will be tempted to dip the chicken in the wet mix first, don't. Remember to rinse your fingers often to avoid a mess.

I hope you enjoy this crispy oven fried chicken recipe. Hopefully you will convert to this healthier way of enjoying crispy chicken with the fried chicken feeling. Happy and healthy Eating to all!
