Secret Ingredient Juicy Oven-Fried Chicken
January 29, 2014
"The chicken soup and cornstarch is the secret ingredient to this delicious mouth- watering juicy chicken, don't bother using a different flavor of condensed soup it will not be good, use whatever parts of chicken you like, my family prefers thighs so that's what I use. There is enough batter for 10 large chicken thighs, plan slightly ahead as the coated chicken needs to sit for 30-40 minutes to allow the coating to get to a doughy texture. This is made using my #recipe11979"

In a large bowl, whisk the egg with condensed soup, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt and hot sauce; add in chicken then using your hands turn to coat the chicken completely in the soup mixture (you will have enough mixture for up to 10 pieces of chicken). Place bowl in refrigerator for 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
In a large bowl combine all dry coating ingredients together very well.
Prepare a large rack to place the coated chicken on, then also prepare a UNGREASED baking sheet to bake the chicken on.
Working with one piece of chicken at a time and using your hands place the soup-coated chicken into the flour mixture and toss to coat completely. Place the coated chicken onto the rack, continue with remaining chicken. Allow the coated chicken to sit on the rack for 30-40 minutes until it's doughy looking.
After 30-40 minutes, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Set oven rack to the bottom position.
Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Using tongs gently lift the chicken and lightly brown on both sides (2-3 minutes per side). Transfer to ungreased baking sheet skin-side up.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until cooked through.
