This “baked” fried chicken is a delicious alternative to traditional fried chicken. I bet you already have most, if not all of the ingredients on hand! The pictures do not do it justice-it is very moist on the inside and crispy on the outside! I made this meal for a close friend who was not feeling well…
Chicken, corn meal, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt, egg, cooking spray
Cut fat off of chicken and pound- The reason I pound meat is because I want both sides even in thickness so the chicken cooks the same through the entire piece. We don’t want one side dry and the other undercooked.
Add egg white and salt in a separate dish
In another dish combine corn meal, bread crumbs, and parmesan cheese.
Dip chicken into egg white (you may dredge in flour first if you wish-but this is not included in the recipe)
Then, coat in breadcrumb mixture
Spray foil lined baking sheet and tops of chicken with Pam. Place in a 425 oven for 25 mins.
Bake until lightly golden on top and center of chicken is white, but still juicy.
I made some rolls, loaded baked potatoes, corn on the cobs and a dump cake .
Packed it up and was on my way to drop it off to a special family with one sick Mama!
And came home to relax and have a nice dinner with my family :)
Oven Fried Chicken Recipe
non stick cooking spray
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp cornmeal
1 large egg white
1/2 tsp salt
6 pounded chicken breasts (fat removed)
Preheat oven to 425 and grease a 15×10 jelly roll pan with cooking spray. In a casserole dish beat egg white with salt. In another dish combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and cornmeal. Dip chicken breast into egg white mixture, then coat with crumb mixture. Place chicken on pan and spray with cooking spray. Bake chicken until coating is crisp and golden brown and juices run clear. Appx 25 mins.
* You can “be bad” and add a white sauce to this for “chicken (baked) fried chicken”… Kind of negates the “baked” part…but I already did that with the loaded baked potatoes. (pray for me, lol)
