I love that Oven Fried Chicken Breast is so much healthier than frying in oil. Plus there’s less cleanup!

I’ve been attempting to cook healthier meals for the past couple months.  As I’ve said before, Pat and I kind of fell off the diet train after the wedding. We had been good for SO long; after it was done we pigged out on cheese and chocolate for a couple months.

Lately I have realized that summer is here and swimsuit season is upon us. We’re back! This Baked Fried Chicken Breast has got us back in the spirit. Some of our other favorite healthy recipes are Salmon with Avocado Salsa, Enchilada Stuffed Peppers, and Healthy Crockpot Tortilla Soup.

I have loved learning the lighter side of cooking. I’m not going to shout from the rooftops that I cook only healthy recipes, but it really is nice to find healthy options for still bringing family favorites to the table.  This Baked Fried Chicken is such an easy way to lighten up a true classic, Buttermilk Fried Chicken. All the comforts of home, in a slimmed down version.

I might just have to try all three! Isn’t it wonderful when lightened up recipes turn out as flavorful as the sinful ones? Those are the recipes to hold on to and pass down for generations.

Can you put floured chicken in the oven?

Of course you can! Complete honesty…the skin does come out crispy from the oven but its not as thick as the crispy skin on truly fried chicken. You still want to do the flour coating and all the spices to create a delicious crispy skin on your Oven Fried Chicken.

What is the internal temperature of the Oven Fried Chicken Breast when its done?

Chicken should read 165F internal temperature when they’re ready to eat. It’s always good to check with a meat thermometer when you’re about to take them out of the oven!

Do you have other baked and not fried Chicken recipes you love?

OH YES! We love these Simple Spiced Baked Chicken Wings, Baked Parmesan Chicken Nuggets, and Honey Garlic Baked Chicken. So many amazing options when baking instead of frying!

Print

  • 2 large chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 stick butter melted
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat leaf parsley optional
  1. CUT chicken breasts in half, lengthwise, to create 4 even portions.

  2. PLACE chicken in a large bowl and marinate in milk for about 20 minutes.

  3. MIX together flour, paprika, all-purpose spice, salt, and pepper in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.

  4. PREHEAT oven to 400ºF.

  5. MELT butter and pour into 9×13 Reynolds®Bakeware Pan, coating the bottom of the pan.

  6. DIP each chicken breast, one at a time, in the flour mixture. COAT both sides liberally. PLACE in pan.

  7. REPEAT with all four chicken breasts, making sure there is a small amount of room between each breast in the pan. This will allow them to crisp while baking.

  8. BAKE at 400ºF for 35-40 minutes (or until the breading is golden brown and the juices run clear), flipping each breast after 20 minutes.

  9. Remove from oven and transfer to a serving dish or serve directly from your Reynolds®Bakeware Pan! Garnish with parsley if desired. Enjoy!
