What’s for Dinner: Oven-Fried [Bone-in] Chicken

So many recipes to catch up on!! Things have been on the hectic side lately, and I’ve definitely slacked on staying updated on the recipes.

It was a great weekend with the family [we invited a lot of family over yesterday], and I loved every minute of it. It’s a lot of work, and tiring… but so worth it.

Tomorrow my brothers and I are going to the US Open. I have never seen a tennis match [see, I know not to call it a game!] live before so I’m definitely looking forward to it!

But first things first, here’s the recipe for the Oven-Fried [bone in] chicken I made about two weeks ago.

I had buttermilk sitting in the fridge because I had been wanting/meaning to make the cheddar bay biscuits… and just hadn’t.

I rarely work with bone-in chicken, but used that when I made this a few weeks ago. I’ve also done a boneless chicken version of oven-fried chicken which you can see by clicking here.

I love fried chicken as much as the next person, but can do without the oil. I try to make things I love with a healthier twist whenever I can. The trick to get it so crispy? The combination of the buttermilk marinade and the breading for sure.

I seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, ginger powder, and cayenne pepper. Add enough buttermilk soak all the chicken. Let it marinate for a few hours for tender meat.

When you are ready to bake your chicken:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line your baking tray with foil or parchment paper [for easy clean-up]. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine about 2 part flours to 1 part plain bread crumbs. Season with cayenne pepper.
  3. Coat each chicken in the flour mixture before transferring to your lined baking tray. Spray all of the chicken with non-stick cooking spray on top
  4. Bake for about 50 minutes in your preheat oven.

The end result? Moist inside, and the crispy crunch outside that we all love so much in fried chicken.

Other recipes I have to post soon? Mango Ice Cream, Kulfi, Semi-homemade Seasoned chips. I *think* that will have me caught up.
