Great news for those of you out there who made a New Years resolution to try to be more like me. From time to time I will post some of my best recipes (cooking suggestions may be a better description).
Installment #1 was my Red Beans & Rice.
And now, Oven "Fried" Chicken, which I made last week, with the assistance of my colleague Ian S., for the families at the Ronald McDonald House in Camden, NJ. Sort of like a home-made Shake n Bake.
OVEN "FRIED" CHICKEN
- Chicken parts (with or without skin, your choice)
- Bread crumbs
- Corn meal
- Optional seasonings: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, Thyme
Thoroughly mix the breadcrumb/cornmeal/seasoning mixture. Wet the chicken pieces under a running faucet and place them, a few at a time, in the mixture. Make sure each piece is completely covered with the mixture and place on a large cookie sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes. Check for doneness before removing. You may also want to raise the temperature for a few minutes at the end to brown the chicken pieces. Just remember to take them out before you burn them.
That's it - a simple way to make very delicious chicken.
