We are chicken lovers at our house. Well most of us anyway. Our 14-year-old, nicknamed Little Floating Feather by my mother in law, is a vegetarian. So she doesn’t get to enjoy it, but for the rest of us this is one of our favorite meals. One reason we began eating more chicken is because of the high price of ground beef.
I like this recipe because I can put it in the fridge in a container and use it up to 5 times. I am able to use my batches for about 6-8 weeks.
You are free to adjust the amount of spices used to cater to your families preferences. This makes a large amount of Fake & Bake Coating. You should be able to use at least 5 times for a family of 4. You use this coating just like you would with name brand coating.
½ C Flour
6-8 Chicken breasts
1 C Coating Mix
2 C flour
2 C finely crushed
⅛ C salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
¾Tbsp. garlic powder
¾Tbsp. onion powder
½ Tbsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. paprika
⅛ C vegetable oil
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Cover chicken with flour.
- Beat 2 eggs in a bowl and coat your chicken. You can use milk or water if you prefer but I find that an egg coating makes for a crisper result.
- Place the chicken in a bowl with 1 cup of coating and thoroughly cover.
- Bake at 400°F in ungreased baking pan until cooked through. Do not cover or turn chicken during baking. Discard any remaining used mix.
Approximate Cooking time: Bone-in: 45 minutes; boneless: 20 minutes.
I usually fix my Dirty Taters with this. I will share that recipe next time. Talk to me fellow homemakers. Do you like chicken? If so what is your favorite way to prepare it?
