I purchased the bone in Chicken Parts for $0.79 per pound, and got the boneless skinless chicken parts for just over $2.00 per package, so today my husband suggested oven Baked Faux fried Chicken, so this is what I created and took pictures as I went along to make it easier to follow.
You may not want to cook the amount I used, but if you have left over seasoning you can store it in the freezer and save it for next time, provided you did not dip the chicken into the bag, and used a platter as suggested.
This chicken is very moist tasty & very flavorful, plus it crispy on the outside.
1Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a long shallow pan like jelly Roll pan & baking wire rack liberally with non stick cooking spray and set aside till needed.
2You will need 5 dishes or platters plus a gallon size zip lock bag. one bowl or platter for the chicken, one for flour, one for the beaten egg mixture, one for the Panko Crumb mixture, plus the shallow baking pan that is sprayed and left to the side.
3To the gallon size zip lock bag, add the crushed onion rings, Panko Bread Crumbs, Paprika, Old Bay Seasoning, Parmesan Cheese, Black Pepper, granulated Garlic, & salt. Blend together evenly.
4Add the flour to PAN #1 one of the pans. Then dip and cover both sides of chicken with flour.
5Add the beaten eggs with water to SECOND pan. Now add chicken to egg mixture & cover each side of chicken.
6Pour half of the panko onion mixture in THIRD of the reserved pans or platters. Add the chicken to the panko mixture, pressing hard to coat all sides.
7Then place chicken on prepared baking rack. Repeat till all chicken has been coated on both sides. Then spray CHICKEN liberally with non stick cooking spray. Place in preheated 425 degree F. oven and bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
8PLEASE NOTE: if YOU ARE BAKING BOTH BONE IN AND BONELESS CHICKEN, COOK THE BONE IN CHICKEN AT LEAST 25 MINUTES BEFORE YOU ADD THE BONELESS CHICKEN TO THE RACK. after 25 MINUTES, HAS ELAPSED ADD THE BONELESS CHICKEN if you are cooking boneless also, AND RETURN TO OVEN AND CONTINUE TO COOK AN ADDITIONAL 25 TO 30 MINUTES OR UNTIL JUICES RUN CLEAR WHEN PIERCED WITH A FORK.
