Oven-Fried Chicken

Sunday, May 22, 2011

I'm not sure I can find anyone who will admit they don't like fried chicken and since we are eating healthier — I thought I would try out an oven-fried chicken recipe.

It was easy, quick and delicious!!!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly oil a baking sheet.  (I used EVOO — not even a teaspoon.)

Season your chicken breasts or strips with salt and ground black pepper to taste.

Whisk together these ingredients in a shallow bowl:
2 large eggs
1/4 cup milk

Combine in a wide, shallow bowl:
2 1/2 cups crushed corn flakes
2 teaspoons salt (I will not add next time.)
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Dip the chicken pieces in the egg mixture, then coat with the corn flake mixture, patting with your fingers to make the crumbs adhere.  The chicken can be prepared to this point up to 3 hours in advance and kept uncovered, in the refrigerator.  Arrange the chicken on the baking sheet.  If you wish, drizzle 2 to 3 tablespoons of melted butter. (I did not.)  Bake until the chicken is crisp and golden, 30 - 60 minutes depending on the size of the chicken pieces.  Serve immediately or at room temperature with the sides of your choice.



  1. all of that looks great !!! I will have to try that chicken for sure my kids love that stuff!

  2. I baked this the other day, but I used French's french-fried onions as the coating. yummy! :o)

  3. My momma used to make this when we were kids!! It was my favorite alongside almond greenbeans. So here's my question, after finding out about a month ago i'm severely lactose intolerant and have to take meds to keep my tummy in check, I wonder if this would be just as good using Soy or Almond milk?? Cooking for myself has been a real handful lately. haha

  4. tried the cornflakes when making fried chicken a few weeks ago--delish!!! definately a winner!
