Oven Fried Chicken

Delicious Oven Fried Chicken is so crispy everyone thinks it's deep-fried on the stovetop!


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 a healthier version and I promise it really tastes fried!


This is so much easy than standing there frying each piece in oil and a lot less to clean up!


This oven fried chicken is so crunchy and flavorful it's hard to believe it wasn't deep-fried.


We love baked chicken and you may also like to try our Baked Chicken Tomato and Zucchini Casserole or Baked Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole.


Making this oven fried is a healthier version than using all that oil and easier than standing over a hot stove, super simple using a cookie sheet and baking it!


If you just scroll all the way down to the bottom you will find this recipe on a printable recipe card and do take a look at a few tips I provided in this post.

Oven-Fried Perfection



If you love crispy chicken then I really would also broil the top in the end after baking for the folks who leave the skin on and likes it crispy.


We remove the skin for a heart-healthy chicken.


Use any parts of the chicken you prefer, this will shock everyone it isn't fried!
