Easy Oven Fried Chicken….
When was the last time you sank your teeth down into a juicy, golden, crispy piece of oven fried chicken??
Well we’ve been doing that a lot around my house and I think we have officially given fried chicken the boot!
Don’t get me wrong now I do love some southern fried chicken but I hate working with hot grease, the time it takes from start to finish and the smell of my kitchen afterwards. That is why I’d only make it a few times a year.
My husband actually prefers oven fried over deep fried. He says he likes that it doesn’t have that greasiness to it, it’s moister and that he doesn’t have to go to work with his clothes smelling like a grandma’s house for a week. LOL
I’ve played around with a few oven-fried chicken recipes and this one (a combination of my grandmothers and my regular fried chicken recipe) seems to be the one I’m sticking to for now. It fries so beautifully in the oven and never fails to get golden and crisp. I also like that it doesn’t make the kitchen smokey like some oven fried chicken recipes have.
It’s seasoned perfectly and smells soooo good when it’s cooking. I hope that you and your fam will enjoy this recipe as much as we do!!

Get the Recipe: Easy Oven Fried Chicken....
- 2 lbs chicken, cut up
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 2 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon white or black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2-3 dashes hot sauce, optional
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2-3 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- Preheat oven to 400
- Wash and dry the chicken.
- Sprinkle the chicken with paprika
- Combine the remaining spices in a small bowl.
- Sprinkle half of the spice mixture over the chicken and reserve the other half for the flour.
- Use your hands to distribute the seasonings all over the chicken
- Add flour to a separate bowl.
- Pour in the other half of the seasoning mixture. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
- In a small bowl add in the egg, milk and a few dashes of hot sauce. Whisk to combine.
- Set a plate aside to place the chicken on once you’re done dipping them.
- First dip the chicken into the egg mixture with one hand. Let excess drip off.
- With the other hand place the chicken in the flour and coat. Using different hands keeps the flour from becoming clumpy.
- Shake off the excess flour and place the chicken on the plate.
- Let chicken sit for 5 minutes. Recoat in flour if desired.
- Generously grease a grill pan rack with vegetable oil.
- Place the chicken on the grill rack.
- Mix butter and olive oil and drizzle over chicken.
- Bake for 40 minutes. Broil for the last 3-4 minutes to crisp up the skin more if desired.
- Let chicken rest before serving.
This oven fried chicken is soo good! This was my first time making it and I WILL make it again. thanks!
I really enjoyed this recipe, it was so good the meat was juicy and tasteful . I’ve recently been married, and as a wife I thought I would start cooking more and had been looking for cooking websites to go to and now I have found the Best!!! , thank you so much.
Came across this recipe and decided to try it out because I love the fact that the chicken is baked and not fried in oil on the stove top. I must say that this is the best oven fried chicken recipe ever! I have made it about three times already and currently have some cooking up in the over now. The chicken comes out perfect every time! I love the combination of seasonings for the chicken as well. I look forward to trying out more recipes from your site. I just showed my son and daughter the fruit leather video and plan on making that with them next!
Good recipe. The seasoning was right on! I have to figure out the correct rack to use in the oven so that I can get chicken to brown just right. I did not double flour. Thank you for all of your recipes
This recipe came out pretty good. The only racks I have are cooling racks and used it. I definitely need tk grease the rack more because the bottom wasn’t as crispy as the top. I’ll also use the broil step because the chicken didn’t maintain the crispiness as it cooled. Overall, husband liked it and I’ll fix it again.
I’ve made this about 3 times now, and each time it has been a huge success!!! I was a little skeptical at first, worried that mine would not come out as crispy, brown or fully cooked as yours, but it did!!! The family loves it!!!! They could not believe that it was oven-baked!! lol I just love you!! Thanks hun!
I made this today and loverboy loved it so did I :0)
