Kentucky Fried Chicken

Pin It
Who doesn't love the taste of Kentucky Fried Chicken?  I would think most of us do but I also think most of us do not like eating the skin of the chicken because of the fat content or grease content or just plain ickiness factor of it but how can you enjoy the taste of the 'secret recipe' that Kentucky Fried Chicken is so famous for without eating the skin?  Baked of course using boneless, skinless chicken breasts!

This recipe has been hitting Pinterest by storm lately so I had to give it a try.  Wanting to give someone credit for the recipe, I will give it to Amy over at Your Life Uncommon where I found the first link through Pinterest. 

Since I was making baked, fried KFC, I just had to have french fries and salad to go with the meal but instead of store bought french fries, I make my own.

First I peel, wash and cut the potatoes up into french fry size and par-boil them for a few minutes.  I find this makes a big difference in how homemade french fries both cook and taste.  I then sprinkle them with olive oil and salt before baking in a 400 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown.


Now onto the chicken!

Place freshly rinsed, thawed chicken breasts or chicken tenderloins in a bowl of milk for approximately 30 minutes and let them soak.

Next add the following ingredients in a ziploc gallon sized bag or in a bowl .....

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon of season all
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons paprika

Mix it all together well.



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut 1/2 stick of butter into a few pieces and place in a 9 x 13 inch pan.  Melt the butter in the pre-heated oven.  


Spread the melted butter around the bottom of the pan.  Lightly spray the pan if needed to make sure there are no dry spots.

Shake the milk off each piece of chicken and shake in the ziploc bag or place in the bowl making sure to completely coat each piece with the seasoning mix.  



Place each piece of chicken in the pan.  Cook for 15 minutes then flip chicken and cook for an additional 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.



Oh so easy and yet oh so good.  Remember to give your loved ones a hug!

  1. That chicken looks so good Debbie. As for the spuds, I leave the skin on, cut them in big wedges, sprinkle with seasoned salt and arrange them on a greased baking sheet. Turn them over after about 10-15 min. Takes a little longer to cook, but you get the benefit of the extra fiber!
