Baked Fried Chicken

I know what you’re thinking; “Baked Fried Chicken is an oxymoron, Jess!” But no friends, it’s just a delicious, slightly healther way to indulge in homemade fried chicken. You get the crunchy fried coating of fried chicken without the oil time (and extra calories) of it being 100% fried. I’d love to share how to make this less-indulgent-but-still-crunchy version of Fried Chicken. We used Ina Garten’s Oven-Fried Chicken as a guide.

First, soak you chicken in buttermilk for 4 hours (or s0).

Then, coat the chicken pieces in flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Fry 3 minutes/side in about 1″ of vegetable oil heated to 350 degrees.

Place chicken on a wire rack on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 to 40 minutes.
