Baked Crunchy Chicken Recipe

Baked Crunchy Chicken Recipe

I have fixed this dish many times for company, and I've never had anyone fail to ask for the recipe. The leftovers—if there are any—are very good heated up in the microwave. —Elva Jean Criswell, Charleston, Mississippi

"I made this using boneless, skinless chicken breast since that is all I had on hand and it was amazing! I'm sure it would be even better as written (with a whole broiler chicken, cut up) and I can't wait to try it this way!"

"I'm making this tonight. Should the chicken be with skin or without? I'm confused."

"I made this last night with chicken thighs. I reduced the ingredients by half because I didn't use a whole chicken. I followed the ingredients as written. Both my wife and I thought this was very good. We will be making this one again for sure. I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you Elva Jean."

"I made this last night. I make a lot of chicken recipes, and this one was SO good. I increased the pepper to 1/4 tsp, added 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and increased the melted butter to 1/2 cup. As did several other reviewers, I laid the chicken on a rack, which kept the bottoms from getting soggy. The only thing I would change is to increase the temperature to 375. Maybe it's just my oven, but at 350 the chicken wasn't quite done in 60 minutes and had to do a bit longer. Other than that, it was perfect. AND, it tastes great hot or cold - I could easily see this as picnic chicken."

"I've tried many (baked & crunchy) chicken recipes, but this one is by far, the VERY BEST!! The chicken was very tasty & juicy, so I'll stick with this recipe. The only bread crumbs which I had on hand were 'whole wheat Panko bread crumbs', so I used 'em. If anything, they made the chicken even crunchier! Thanks Elva Jean, for the very best Baked chicken recipe ever!"

"I made this recipe exactly as written. It was delicious, my husband and daughter raved about it and the onions were the reason. The only thing I would do different is like Paul3303 said, use a rack and elevate the chicken. The tops were so crispy, but the bottoms were soggy. This is a keeper and I will make it many times after that one change."

"This is one of the best of this type of oven-baked "fried" chicken recipes that I have ever tried - in fact, it may be the best. My husband gave it 5 stars! I think it is the French-fried onions that make the difference. Thanks for sharing!"
