Crispy Oven-Baked Florida Chicken

Crispy Oven-Baked Florida Chicken

Yield 4 to 6 Servings

1 whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces, or pre cut bone in pieces (leg, thigh, breast, wing)
1 whole egg
2 cups bread crumbs (preferably panko or cracker meal)
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
2 tablespoons of a favorite seasoning blend
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
Non stick pan spray

This recipe can be used with boneless chicken breast also.

* Make sure to wash hands thoroughly with soap and hot water and sanitize any surface raw chicken comes in contact with.


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse chicken pieces under cold running waterand pat dry with a paper towel. Season chicken pieces lightly with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Use three separate bowls, one with flour, one with bread crumbs, and one with one egg beaten with ¼ cup cold water. Season the flour and the bread crumbs each with one tablespoon of your favorite seasoning blend.

Lightly spray a cookie sheet or baking pan with non stick pan spray. First, lightly roll the seasoned chicken in the flour. Next, dip the floured chicken into the egg mixture until completely coated. Let the excess egg mixture drip off, then roll the chicken into the bread crumbs until completely coated. Arrange coated chicken pieces on pan and lightly spray chicken with the non stick spray. Bake chicken until golden brown. Insert a meat thermometer into a thick section of the chicken without touching the bone. The internal temperature should reach 180° F for whole chickens or leg meat parts; 170° F for bone-in breast; and 160° F for skinless, boneless breast.

Serve chicken with fresh sliced Florida tomatoes or your favorite Florida recipe side dish
