Fried chicken in the oven????

What do you mean fried chicken in the oven? Well, if you LOVE fried chicken (like me) and you don't have a deep fryer or don't want to make that sort of mess if you do, you can pull off Oven Fried Chicken.

Sometimes I don't want to muck around with my deep fryer so I had a nose around and found this recipe for some pretty good chicken.


3-4 lbs (1.5-2kg) chicken parts (just don't use wings, they're too small and will burn)
1 cup flour
1 tbsp paprika
1tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/3 cup butter
2 large eggs, beaten with a splash of milk

Preheat your oven to 425F (220C)

Wash chicken and pat dry with paper towels.

In a bowl, beat your eggs and milk to make an egg wash.


In a large bowl, combine flour, paprika, salt and pepper.

 Coat chicken with the egg wash, then coat with the flour mixture.

Put butter in a roasting pan; place in oven to melt.

When the butter is melted, arrange chicken in the pan in a single layer, skin side down.

Bake at 425F (220C) for 30 minutes; turn and bake for 15 longer, or until chicken is done. Remove and place on a plate covered with paper towels.

Serve with sides of your could do coleslaw and fries or salad or, like us, braised cabbage and a Birdseye Steam Fresh pouch.

So, you can fry chicken in the oven...and with the cheap cost of chicken, it's a lot cheaper than going to whatever restaurant you normally get your from.
