Southern Oven Fried Chicken

When you’re hungry for fried chicken yet you can’t get out , and not willing to make a huge mess with deep frying , this is a good option to satisfy that hunger .

I don’t do deep frying on a lot of things . First , because it’s a messy business . Second , it uses a lot of oil and to me that’s a lot of oil to be wasted . And third it’s because it’s too fattening . Maybe the third reason should be the first whatever ..

Oven fried chicken I easy and quick to make . I usually use the other recipe using cornflakes n baked it was good too . But this takes it to another level , you would think this was actually deep fried . And I use a lot of spices in my flour mix too. So I think this has more flavor .

  • 1/3 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
