Oven baked fried chicken
This is my best oven baked fried chicken so far.
- 10 chicken tenderloins
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk- make your own by using 1 tablespoon of white vinegar per 1 cup of regular milk.
- 2 1/2 cups flour.
- 1/3 cups cornmeal.
- 2 tablespoons butter.
- 2 tablespoons oil.
- 1 tablespoon salt.
- 1 teaspoon pepper.
- 1 teaspoon paprika.
- 2 teaspoons cardamom powder.
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder.
Mix Spices together, take just 1 tablespoon of the spice mixture and add it to 1 cup of buttermilk.
Rinse the chicken, and soak overnight -in your fridge - in the buttermilk.
When you are ready to cook, pre-heat your oven to 400F.
Microwave butter and oil until butter is melted, spread half the butter mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Mix, flour, cornmeal and the remaining of the spices very well in a bowl.
Using a fork, gradually mix the remaining buttermilk into the flour until there are little lumps throughout. You might need more flour or more buttermilk to get decent amount of lumps.
Coat chicken tenders with the flour mixture pressing with your fingers to adhere the lumps nicely and evenly to your chicken pieces.
Arrange chicken on the buttered baking sheet, with a spoon, or a brush, brush the remaining butter and oil mixture on the top side of the chicken.
Bake until it reaches the desired color and crispness, turning once halfway, mine took 30 minutes total.
Serve and Enjoy!
