Baked Fried Chicken

Baked Fried Chicken



A healthy recipe for buttermilk chicken that tastes deep fried but is actually baked! A cornflake crust makes the chicken golden and crispy on the outside, and a buttermilk marinade keeps it juicy and sweet on the inside.

YIELD: 12 chicken breasts PREP TIME: 30 minutes COOK TIME: 30 minutes TOTAL TIME: 3 hours

Ingredients:

  • 12 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups cornflake crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning



Directions:

  1. Rinse the chicken breasts in cold water, then place them in a resealable plastic bag with the buttermilk and hot sauce. Close the bag, shake until the chicken pieces are fully coated, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spray a wire rack with vegetable oil spray and place it in a roasting pan or on a baking sheet.
  3. Place the flour on a plate. Mix the cornflake crumbs, paprika, salt, black pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, and poultry seasoning in a bowl until the ingredients are evenly distributed. Remove the chicken breasts from the bag and place them on a plate. Pour the marinade into a medium bowl. Dredge each breast with the flour until fully coated, shaking off any excess. Then coat the chicken in the marinade, followed by a dredging in the cornflake mixture.
  4. Arrange the chicken pieces on the prepared wire rack. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F and bake until cooked through and crispy, 15 to 20 minutes.
