Delicious Oven-Fried Chicken

IMG_1948 (I thought for sure I had taken a picture of our chicken but I guess we only got a picture of us making it. Sorry about that LOL. At least she’s cute right?!)

  • Chicken Breasts, Legs or Thighs (Bone In!)
  • Buttermilk or Milk
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Pepper
  • Vegetable Oil

Place chicken pieces in a bowl and cover with milk or buttermilk, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 deg F

Combine dry ingredients. Take chicken out of milk and coat thoroughly.

Pour oil into a stockpot (about an inch deep – the oil, not the pot) and heat until 360 deg F.

Fry chicken for about 3 minutes per side or until light golden brown. Work in batches, do not crowd.

Remove chicken, place on baking rack on top of cookie sheet and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until done.

Serve with country gravy or sweet and sour sauce!

    1. I admit I’m feeling really guilty right now for not visiting here in a while. I’m trying to get caught back up though.

      I love that you posted this recipe. Just the other day, I was thinking about making some oven fried chicken, but it’s been forever since I’ve tried it and I told myself I’d have to find a recipe for it and hope for the best.

      This is different from what I remember doing before, so I’m excited about giving it a try. Thanks!

      By the way, who cares about a chicken picture. The picture of you and your daughter working together in the kitchen is much more precious. 🙂

    2. This sounds wonderful! My 9 year old, soon to be 10 was asking for fried chicken for his birthday dinner and I did not know how to do it – Thank You! He will be very happy!
      Have a great day!
