Here's an easy oven fried chicken recipe. I just love the spice mix in the bread crumbs... sometimes I add a bit more garlic, but I'm a bit of a garlic fanatic.
This recipe is great because it's so quick and easy to prepare. And once it's in the oven, you're free to do whatever else you want... like cook up some delicious side dishes.
Try it with rice and veggies. You can't go wrong!
Here it is!
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Combine bread crumbs, parmesan, paprika, onion powder, garlic, salt and pepper in a small, shallow bowl.
Take each chicken breast and dredge it in the flour. Shake off any excess flour. Dip the floured chicken breast in the milk, and then dredge it in the bread crumb mixture, getting a good thick breading on there.
Place the breaded chicken breasts in a baking dish. Be careful not to overcrowd your dish!
Cook the chicken breasts in the preheated oven for 50 minutes, turning them after 25 minutes.
I like using milk because it's so simple. You just grab it from the fridge and pour it in a bowl. But it doesn't let you get as thick a coating as some other liquids you could use, like eggs or buttermilk.
