A community recipe by

Crispy, moist chicken that mimics deep fried fast food chicken, but much healthier.. and tastier! in my opinion! I am giving 2 options for quicker seasoning, but purists, use the other spice mixture.


Serves: 0

For the Chicken

  • 4 pounds chicken
  • adobo seasoning

For the Coating

  • 3 cups seasoned dried breadcrumbs (or crushed corn cereal flakes)

For the Marinade

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • dry ranch salad dressing (add hot sauce to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried marjoram
  • ½ teaspoon fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon tabasco (to taste)
  • melted butter

  • Whisk choice of seasonings with butter milk Add chicken pieces (in large bowl or in large zip lock plastic bag) Refrigerate over night, turning/stirring occasionally
  • When ready to prepare, dredge chicken in your choice of coating (i like Japanese crumbs best), place on trays *even better if you put on wire racks on top of trays)
  • Let sit in fridge for at least 1 hr (up to 3 hrs)
  • Line baking trays with foil When ready to cook, preheat oven at 450 degrees
  • Drizzle chicken with melted butter
  • Dark Meat - about 45 min.. then turn down to 350 for 15 - 25 min
  • White Meat - about 20-30 min at 450 degrees
  • **check for doneness! no red juices.. but let sit for juices to redistribute Hope you try it! Great with oven roasted potatoes that cook at the same time as chicken..and a crisp green salad
