Living in the South, fried chicken is a staple for any kind of get-together, but all that frying is hard on the diet.  This oven fried chicken recipe has all the taste of fried chicken, but is actually baked...and even the most die-hard fried chicken fans love it!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup corn meal
  • 3 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 lbs chicken parts for parties, I like to use drum sticks

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  • Combine the lemon juice and Dijon mustard in a bowl.
  • Combine all of the dried ingredients in a large ziploc bag.
  • Line the baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.
  • Put the chicken into the lemon juice/mustard mixture and brush it over the chicken to coat, 2 or 3 pieces at a time.
  • Add the chicken pieces to the bread crumb mixture in the ziploc bag.
  • Close the bag and shake to coat the chicken.
  • Remove the chicken from the bag and arrange on the baking sheet, skin side up.
  • (optional) The chicken can be stored in the refrigerator, uncovered, for up to 3 hours.
  • Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • Serve warm or cold...your guests will love it!

Notes

Pots:
Bowl large enough to hold a few chicken pieces at a time
Large ziploc bag
Baking sheet
Note:  If you are serving the chicken on a buffet in a chafing or warming dish, the chicken will stay crispier if you leave the lid off.
