Oven Fried Chicken



I love southern fried chicken.  Unfortunately my digestive system hates it.  I found this recipe and tried it today.  I like it a lot.  Probably because of all the spices.


2 cups buttermilk

1 Tablespoon Tabasco

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into strips

2 cups bread crumbs

6 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1 Tablespoon onion powder

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, but why would you want to omit it?)

1 teaspoon paprika

cooking spray


Prep time 15 minutes, cook time 35 minutes, ready in 2 hours 15 minutes.

  1.  Stir buttermilk and hot sauce together in a bowl; add chicken and stir to coat.  Marinate chicken in refrigerator for at least one hour.
  2. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  3. mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and paprika in a large shallow bowl.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade, shaking pieces to remove excess moisture.  Discard the remaining marinade
  5. Gently press chicken pieces into the crumb mixture to coat.  Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven’t stuck can fall away.  Arrange breaded chicken onto prepared baking sheet.
  6. Refrigerate breaded chicken at least 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  8. Lightly coat chicken pieces with cooking spray.
  9. Bake chicken in preheated oven until browning on top, 15 -20 minutes.  Flip pieces and continue baking until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is crisp, 15 to 20 minutes more.
