Oven Fried Chicken Breasts from Amanda's Cookin' @amandaformaro

Fried chicken is the bomb. No arguments here! But of course, we want to put less fried foods into our system whenever possible, so the next best thing is breading and baking your dinner. I’m in love with this flavoring which adds just a bit of kick to the chicken and makes for a fabulous meal.

Do you like my cute little chicken pot holders? I can’t remember where I found them now. Undoubtedly it was at a thrift store or flea market somewhere, or maybe even a garage sale. Garage sales. Now there’s something I’ve really missed out on this year. :-/ When I broke my ankle in early June it pretty much wiped out all the trotting around I did previously. Bummer for it to happen during the summer too!

Anyway, back to the chicken. It’s tender and juicy with a tasty, zippy breading that I think you’re going to love. If you try it, be sure to let me know what you thought!

    Looks delicious. I’m wondering if I could make a lower-carb version of this by using similar seasonings and almond flour to coat the chicken. Might have to give it a try.

    I’ve gotta try this! We love fried chicken but hate the mess and smell that comes along with deep frying. Oven frying is a great option!

    I love the pan fry/oven method – you don’t have to babysit it too much for juicy chicken.

    Hope you are having a great summer!

    Hi Amanda,

    I made this yesterday and I couldnt believe how tender they were! my 5 years old can finally eat chicken breast without it sticking in between his teeth haha!

    Was wondering, can we freeze them and just remove them for cooking?

    This was absolutely delicious! I loved how easy it was to make and that there wasn’t much to do for prep! The chicken tastes exactly like classic fried chicken and I don’t feel so guilty for eating it! It develops a wonderful crust in the oven (I put mine on a cooling rack over a jellyroll pan to avoid what I call “soggy side”). Thanks for the great recipe that I will be adding to my favorites book!
