We don’t have fried food at our home very often.  I hate how frying foods will leave my house smelly for days!  This oven fried chicken tastes just as delicious as regular fried chicken, but without all the mess!

  1. I made this tonight, exactly how to recipe says. Kind of a disaster actually. When I flipped them half way through, they were soggy and all the breading came off the chicken. When they were done, the breading was still falling off. I had naked chicken. The second time (I had more chicken to cook since is didn't fit in the pan) I did not add any butter to the pan, and it came out a little bit better, but for some reason the breading still fell off. I LOOOVED the flavor of the breading, so I'll use that again, I just need to figure out why it all fell off. Maybe I should stick to the egg mixture instead of the buttermilk?? I don't know what I did wrong, but thank you for a good breading recipe!
