Oven Fried Crispy Chicken

One of those days when you crave for something crispy without the deep-frying......I thank to the broil option of the oven :) Give these a will want more....

Dish Category: Starter, Appetizers, Side Dish

Serves: 4

What I like about this recipe: Simple, easy, healthy, savoury and tasty


  1. 1 lb boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
  2. 1 cup yogurt, lightly beaten
  3. 2 tbsp lemon/lime juice
  4. 1 tbsp hot sauce of choice
  5. 1 tsp garlic salt - optional
  6. 2 cloves garlic, paste
  7. 2 cups cornflakes/bread crumbs/all-purpose flour
  8. 1 egg
  9. 1 cup milk
  10. salt and black pepper to taste
  11. 2 tbsp olive oil
  12. Cooking spray
  1. Whisk the yogurt, lemon juice and garlic paste together and coat the chicken pieces well. Let marinate for 20 - 30 mins. The longer the better
  2. Preheat oven to 350 deg F
  3. Crush cornflakes (if using) in a food processor and set aside. 
  4. Beat together egg and milk, season with salt, pepper and hot sauce
  5. Dip the chicken pieces into the milk and egg mix and coat with cornflakes. Repeat after 10 minutes as the cornflakes become moist; re-dippin them in the crumbs enhances crispiness
  6. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray and place chicken pieces 
  7. Sprinkle with seasonings if desired
  8. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes...or until inside of tenders are white
  9. Broil for 5 - 6 mins or until golden and crispy on the outside
  10. Serve with your choice of sauce
