EZ Oven Baked Fried Chicken

I haven't been cooking much in my kitchen these days except for the weekends. Occasionally, I would love to indulge in some deep fried food but was put off doing it cos' I don't want to keep the used deep fried oil.  Some of you may say 'Aiyoh, so simple just buy lah!'.  Yes, I did but later regret it cos' I 'suffered' for 2 weeks because of this deep fried food which I bought.  Maybe I've a sensitive throat but I developed a sore throat which turned into a flu and bad cough.
Recently, I came across this recipe where I can have deep fried chicken using the oven.   The oven fried chicken is full of flavour without the greasiness as deep fried.  You can use other cuts of chicken, too.
I must say that I'm quite happy with the result eventhough the crispiness can still be improved but the meat was tender, succulent and juicy.  Probably, I'll try again with another flavour [here I used pepper/salt and curry powder].  Best  thing is, my throat was okay and the chicken wasn't oily even with the skin.
[serves 3]
3 piece chicken whole leg - [deboned chicken chop style]
2 tsp pepper and salt mix
1 tsp curry powder
  • Pat dry chicken drumstick and marinate with above pepper salt mix [I used the one I bought from Taiwan] and curry powder for several hours or overnight.
1 egg lightly beaten with 30 ml milk
30 ml melted butter
Flour Coating - mix together
2 tsp pepper and salt mix
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 cup all purpose flour
  1. Grease a baking rack with some melted butter or oil.  Place over a baking tray lined with aluminium foil [for easy cleaning].
  2. Dip marinated chicken legs with beaten egg, then coat with flour coating.  Shake off excess flour and place on a big plate.  Leave for 5-10 minutes, then put back into the flour mix to coat with more flour.
  3. Place chicken pieces on baking rack.  Drizzle  melted oil all over coated chicken pieces [this is to get the crispy coating].
  4. Baked in preheated oven at 200 degrees C [middle shelf] for 40 minutes.  Then grill for another 5-10 minutes until crispy.  Remove from oven and rest for 5 minutes before serving [I served chicken without slicing].

Can coat chicken with any seasoning of your choice such as garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, black or white pepper, Cajun seasoning etc.

I'll certainly go for this version, no greasy clean up! Looks yummy!

Kimmy, this looks really good! Deep frying will not only cause bad health but kitchen also becomes so oily. I must try this oven style.

Hi Cheah, I'm like you, dislike greasy kitchen. The chicken is tender, moist and the skin coating is crispy on those spots with butter. Enjoyed it very much and couldn't be bothered to take more photos, hahaha!
I'll be doing it again with some other flavours.

Hi Phong Hong, I strongly recommend that you try. You will love it especially when you don't need a drop of cooking oil and the cleaning up is easy. Actually you can drizzle on top some olive oil too.
