Nanny Florida’s recipe box has several different recipes for oven-fried chicken. My mom remembers Nanny Florida making the tastiest, juiciest fried-chicken, so I decided to make it a point to try each recipe and determine the best. Consider this round 1!
Oven-Fried Chicken: Recipe 1
2 1/2 – 3 lb. broiler-fryer chicken (cut up), 1/3 c. flour, 3/4 c. breadcrumbs, 1/4 c. fresh grated parmesan cheese, 1 c. butter (melted), 1 egg, 2 Tbsp. water, fresh ground sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper
Mix together flour, salt, and pepper and set aside. Whisk together egg and water and out aside. Combine cheese and bread crumbs and set aside. Coat chicken with flour, then dip in egg mixture, and then bread crumb mixture. Place chicken in a 13×9″ baking pan, and drizzle with melted butter. Bake at 375°F, for 1 hour or until tender.
*I used drumsticks and boneless skinless chicken breasts to test this recipe…
It was tasty! I don’t think I’ll use this for drumsticks again since I like them to be extra crispy. It did however make the chicken breasts extremely juicy which won Hubster’s seal of approval.
