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:
- 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.
- Combine about 2 part flours to 1 part plain bread crumbs. Season with cayenne pepper.
- 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
- 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.
