Oven Fried Chicken

This is a healthy version of fried chicken that you can enjoy with-out guilt. The cornflake breading can be used in so many ways.


1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast or 2 1/2 pounds chicken parts with bones, skin removed.

4 tablespoons Homemade breading (see recipe posted below)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place breading in a plastic bag and shake a few pieces of chicken in the breading.
Arrange chicken pieces so that they are not touching in a baking pan sprayed with Pam.(I line the pan with foil for easier clean up) At this point I use my Misto sprayer that is filled with olive oil and I spray the breaded chicken lightly before baking. Bake boneless breast for 15-20 minutes and chicken parts for 45-60 minutes.

If the breast are thick it may take 25-30 minutes to bake. It comes out looking like beautiful fried chicken.
