After making so many flawless Eating Well recipes this one hit the skids. My husband and I made it together using boneless/skinless chicken thighs and breasts. We let it marinate for 30 mins. We tried using the shake and bake technique but it turned into a gummy mess in the bag. I instead whipped up a second batch of coating and dredged the chicken pieces instead. They never crisped up in the over (even after turning it up by 50 degrees 1/2 through baking. So instead there was a cooked flour coating liked they'd just been dusted. My husband attempted to eat them and we ended up throwing the entire batch out.
I made this for the second time last night. Fried chicken is my favorite thing and this tastes just like it. Be sure and put the foil on the baking sheet. I didn't have foil so the bottom didn't get crispy. And I agree you have to spray it on the top AND bottom to get rid of the flour patches and get it to crisp up. Also I just used boneless skinless chicken thighs.
I used to make this frequently years ago. Delicious. I'll have to make this again. A tip for the chicken and soggy bottoms. Heat oven to 450 place baking sheet into oven for about 5-6 minutes remove sheet spray and place chicken on it. You'll hear the chicken start to sizzle.
Extremely Healthy Oven Fried Chicken I'm from New Orleans so no stranger to the kitchen. Big Smile) I used lemon juice and plain old milk to do my marinade but I also added some grated Parmesan cheese to the marinade. Just an FYI that any chicken would be considered bland if you only add spices to the marinade. In my recipe change I also added chili powder salt lemon pepper and paprika to the wheat flour just to make sure that it has a kick and I also sprayed the chicken all over with butter flavored olive oil cooking spray. I wrapped a turkey rack (the kind inside of a turkey pan) with foil and perforated hole sin the bottom of it. Worked like a charm. The chicken was extra crispy because I baked it at 450 for an hour or so. The skin was also nice and golden brown. I will definitely be doing this chicken again soon. OUTSTANDING! Pros: Outsanding Flavor Cons: Had to take it up a notch
