This Oven-Fried Chicken was one of my maternal grandmothers favorite dishes. It's delicious, simple to make, and turns out perfectly moist and tender every time. This dish makes a perfect week night meal because not only is it easy to prepare, it tastes great too. Whip up some mashed potatoes and gravy and you've got a real comfort meal!
"We really liked this recipe. I didn't add salt to the marinade but I did add about a teaspoon to the bread crumbs. My husband really wanted fried chicken so we decided to pan fry them in a half and inch of oil for about 5 minutes on each side. It solved the crust issue and the result was delicious!"- Mrsswill

In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic powder, celery salt, dry mustard, pepper and paprika and mix well. Add chicken pieces and toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or up to 24 hours).
After marinating, remove chicken from refrigerator and toss to coat in marinade mixture once again (to make sure pieces are well-coated). Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place breadcrumbs and parsley in a shallow dish, mixing together well. Roll marinated chicken pieces in crumb mixture to coat evenly on all sides. Place chicken pieces in a single layer on a large baking pan.
Bake, uncovered, about 45 to 55 minutes (depending on size of chicken pieces you're using) or until juices run clear when tested with a fork, gently turning pieces halfway through cooking time. Remove to a warm platter and serve. We like to serve this with mashed potatoes and gravy.
Sometimes, I like to add a little cayenne (about 1/8 teaspoon) to kick this up a bit.

meganspit 8 months agoThis was delicious. I love the marinade. Chicken was so tender, you could cut it with a fork. I cooked mine on the George Foreman (using chicken tenders) for five minutes. Thanks for sharing :) I love this app!
alvinia 9 months agoIt was pretty tasty. I used boneless skinless chicken breast. Marinated it overnight. Coated with breadcrumbs then egg then more breadcrumbs. Breading stayed together. I will be cooking this again

Masterharper2 10 months agoMy family loves this one. It is messy to eat (bring the napkins), but it tastes so good we can definitely forgive it for the messy face and fingers!
tlbarker72 10 months agoI found this chicken to be a little bland. It was ok but not great. The bread crumbs didnt stick very well and did not crisp up the way I like. Others have suggested frying in a little oil first but to me that defeatsbthe purpose of oven fried chicken.
mogriff1 11 month agoMy hubbyvand I really enjoyed this recipe! I didnt have celery salt so I used garlic salt. I also used whole wheat panko instead of bread crumbs....it gave it a nice crunchy texture. Will definitely make this again!
