Incredible Cheesy Parmesan Oven-Fried Chicken!
If you love fried chicken, this is a great easy dinner idea to add to your weekly menu. It's very easy to make for a family meal during the week or even for a dinner party if you like. This chicken recipe isn't your typical fried chicken either; it's not fried in a pan on the stove but in the oven. The best way to fry chicken is in the oven if you want it to be healthier than deep fried chicken in oil. This way you don't get all of the oil that's required to fry up chicken in a pan or a deep fryer, but just enough to get it nice and crispy on the outside. The recipe from Incredible Recipes shares how to bread your chicken in the best way too. It's a three part breading method that will make sure the breading sticks to the chicken while it cooks so you get a crispy outside and a juicy chicken inside. Lisa Jazmine says that she always uses fresh ingredients when she makes her recipes, so it's best that you do too if you want the best results. For example, instead of using frozen chicken you could use fresh chicken that hasn't been frozen yet. Or you could use freshly grated parmesan cheese for a fresher flavour.
For the chicken breasts you can use either bone-in or boneless chicken breasts but just be sure to get organic, pasture-raised chicken meat. This meat will be healthier in many regards when compared with factory farmed chicken meat. Factory farmed meats tend to contain a lot of fat which isn't healthy for us to consume a lot of. It can also contain hormones and antibiotics that aren't healthy to consume a lot of either. So whenever you can try and get organic chicken that's raised on a happy farm instead of the commercially raised chicken. The same goes for cheese, milk, eggs and other animal products, always try and buy organic if you can. Not only is this recipe the best way to fry chicken and it will leave you with delicious crispy chicken, but it's also great for leftovers too. Lisa Jazmine shares that you can use this chicken for chicken parmesan as leftovers. Just put some nice tomato sauce all over it and put some mozzarella on top too and bake it in the oven. Serve it with pasta or with a nice salad.
The original fried chicken makes a great easy dinner idea when served with vegetables and some potatoes, or you could even serve it sliced up on a salad for a healthy option. You will need a total of four chicken breasts that are very thin, some olive oil, eggs, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, adobo, parsley, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese and mayonnaise. If you're gluten sensitive or someone in your family or household is, you could try and substitute the bread crumbs in this recipe for gluten-free breadcrumbs which are easy to make yourself. Just take a couple of pieces of gluten-free dried bread and put them in your food processor to lightly grind into crumbs. You can also make bread crumbs with your hands just by tearing the bread apart or grating it with a cheese grater. Once you've tried frying chicken this way, you can maybe try this method with other meats like fish which is also great fried.
