how to make southern fried chicken in the oven | Family Cuisine

Southern fried chicken is a favorite dish that many people like to make in the oven. It's easy and quick, and it tastes great!

All the flavor and crunch of Southern-fried chicken…but made a whole lot healthier by baking! I love this Southern Oven “Fried” Chicken!

This is how the conversation went when my friend saw me editing these photos.

“Oooh! Fried Chicken – YUM!, he exclaimed.

“Nope, not fried. Baked,” I said smugly.

“Bollocks,” he retorted. “Are you being dodgy with your photos? Did you pick up KFC?”

“As if!!!”, I exclaimed, indignantly. “You know me better than that!!! I swear this is made in the oven!”

“Seriously??” he said. “You swear – you made these in the oven?”

YES. I swear. These are made in the oven. Are you as amazed as he was??

All the flavour and crunch of Southern fried made a whole lot healthier by baking! I love this SOUTHERN OVEN "FRIED" CHICKEN!

As insulted as I was that he would question my integrity, I was busting to prove that I wasn’t lying (let’s be honest, I just wanted to say “See? I TOLD YOU SO!”) so I made it again the next day. Not that it was any sort of hardship, having to make it again. I could seriously eat this every day.

Southern Oven Fried Chicken

Because, my friends, the plain fact is this: I love fried foods. I have a theory that anything is made delicious by frying it. And I can’t think of any fried food that I wouldn’t happily munch on.

But as much as I love fried foods…I hate deep-frying myself. Partly because I have a fear of frying (at my very core, I am quite a klutz) and also because I feel like it’s a waste of oil.

So I have many baked versions of classic fried foods. This is one of my favorites, along with my KFC Oven Fried Chicken Tenders (seriously – tastes just like KFC!) and because I don’t bake everything… Chicken Fried Steak for the win!

Don’t skip the marinating! It’s key to get flavor into the flesh of the chicken. Promise me you won’t skip it!

If you enjoyed this recipe, I think you’ll love these crunchy Oven Fried Parmesan Chicken Tenders!
