Ranch Oven Fried Chicken Recipe

Oven Fried Chicken Recipe

This week for Soul Food Sunday I am sharing a recipe for oven fried chicken. I wanted to share my husband’s fried chicken recipe (we all love it so much), but I hate frying food in the house. Everything gets so greasy. So I tried a recipe for oven fried chicken. Much healthier and no messy grease.

I adapted this recipe from one I found on the internet. I added ranch for little extra tang. The recipe was very easy to make and pretty good. My biggest issue was the fact that the crust on the bottom stuck to the baking rack a tad. But the chicken was still fine, since there was plenty of crust on the top. I hope you enjoy it!

Olive oil cooking spray

Preheat oven to 450.  Line a cookie sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top of the cookie sheet. Spray cookie sheet with olive oil spray.

Mix flour, ranch mix, baking powder, seasoning salt and remaining ½ tsp in a plastic zipper bag. Remove chicken from plastic bag. Shake off excess and place in flour bag. Shake until coated and place on wire rack. Discard flour and ranch mixtures once done.

Spray chicken lightly olive oil spray (chicken should be moist) and place in oven. Bake until golden brown and thermometer reads 170 degrees, which should be 50-60 minutes.

  1. I made this for the second time last night. Fried chicken is my favorite thing, and this tastes just like it.
