Italian Baked Chicken Recipe


Delicious oven fried chicken with all the right spices that make that crispy skin so perfectly seasoned. This is one of those quick and easy recipes that we make often because after you eat it this way the family will ask for it again and again! It's healthier version and I promise it really taste fried!


Italian Baked Chicken Recipe

4 to 5 pieces of bone in thighs, breast or legs and even a combination 
combination of vegetable and olive oil 1/4 cup mixed (or use canola oil if you prefer)
minced garlic around 2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 1 tablespoon dried
salt, pepper to taste
Italian flavored bread crumbs (panko works the best but whatever you have is fine)
grating cheese Reggiano Romano or use any Italian style grating cheese
granulated garlic
dried oregano

In a large bowl add the chicken, 1/4 cup olive oil and toss to evenly coat. Add salt, pepper, minced garlic, parsley and stir to coat evenly. 
Place the chicken in a greased disposable aluminum pan or deep baking dish lined with parchment paper. 

Since I love garlic so much I like to add more of the granulated on top of the chicken.


Sprinkle the tops of the chicken pieces with bread crumbs, grating cheese, granulated garlic and oregano evenly all over.

Bake in a 400 degree hot oven until chicken is nicely browned and crispy skin around 45 minutes. 

Note:  I do not turn the chicken over during baking
