Oven-Fried Chicken

I rarely cook fried chicken at home, we usually order it out or have it delivered because it is easy and I have to admit that I cannot make better fried chicken at home than the ones from Mcdonald’s (my favorite) or KFC’s.

Well, I could try but to make a perfect fried chicken requires right temperature and a lot of oil, a deep-fryer is a must or we end up with greasy fried chicken.

My version of fried chicken at home is pan-fried in a little oil only then I cover it to cook the chicken through and I let the skin brown really well so they’re crispy and crunchy.

I heard about oven-fried chicken from Barefoot Contessa, and I thought it sounded good, crispy fried chicken without using a lot of oil. I was intent on trying it, I saved the recipe and all but then when I reviewed it, I found out that I have to pre-cook the chicken by frying it in an inch-high oil..what?!

I thought, there wouldn’t be any frying involve, that it would just go directly in the oven..gah!  I’m sure it’ll give delicious oven-fried chicken at the end especially since it’s from Ina. BUT right now, I want something more simple and easy to make.  

With the oil and extra work, I would rather order fried chicken…I’ll give Ina Garten’s recipe a try next time. Good thing I found a recipe that fits my preference for oven-fried chicken: simple, easy, healthy.. 🙂
