Mississippi Oven Fried Chicken Recipe
Who needs the mess of a deep fryer when you can get flavorful chicken from your oven? This chicken is coated with a little butter and seasoned crumbs, then it's baked in a hot oven. Couldn't be easier!


  • 1 broiler-fryer chicken, about 2 to 2 1/2 cups, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or melted butter


Wash chicken pieces; pat dry.

Combine bread crumbs, salt, paprika and pepper. Brush each piece of chicken with vegetable oil or melted butter, and then roll in crumb mixture.

Arrange the coated chicken pieces in shallow lightly oiled baking pan, skin side up.

Bake at 425° for about 35 to 45 minutes, or until chicken is tender and juices run clear.

Great Recipe!!, Member tntonline

My husband and I tried this recipe tonight for something different. We thought it was wonderful. Chicken was tender and had exceptional flavor. We wonder how this would taste after being cooked on the grill!! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us it will become a staple of our recipe collection.
