Recipes Oven Fried Chicken

Oven Fried Chicken

Fried chicken is a definite family favorite in our house. We wanted to find a way to have the taste we love, but not have the splatter mess on the stove or the higher fat content of deep fat frying. We tried different egg wash and crumb textures and had plenty of takers to help us eat these trials – LOL! The key is to heat the oven higher and space the chicken further from each other on a wire rack to allow good air flow. The most time consuming is the egg wash dipping and crumbing of each piece, but once it’s in the oven you can sit back and relax.

4 servings of 2 pieces of chicken each


Olive oil nonstick cooking spray
2 large eggs, beaten
3 tablespoon Jim’s Own Sauce Mustard or Hot
2 cups panko bread crumbs (or regular bread crumbs)
3 tablespoons Jim’s Own Rub Mild or Smokey
8 chicken pieces of your choice


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Fit a sheet tray with a wire rack and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In a pie plate or shallow bowl, whisk the eggs and Jim’s Own Sauce, together until thoroughly combined.

Add the panko and Jim’s Own Rub to another pie plate and mix to combine.

Dredge the chicken through the wet mixture, then the dry mixture, patting the breading on so it adheres. Arrange on a wire rack lined sheet tray, making sure there is ample space between each piece of chicken. Give the chicken a spritz of the olive oil cooking spray. This will help brown and crisp up the coating.

Put on the upper rack of the oven and bake until the chicken is golden and crisp. The temperature should register 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer in the thickest part of the chicken, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and serve.

Cooks Notes

To reduce the fat even more y’all can use skinless chicken pieces too.

When using different parts of the chicken they will cook different times due to size etc. so either use the same cuts then they should all be ready at the same time or make sure you check the individual cuts to ensure the wings are not cooked dry when the thighs are finally ready 🙂
